About the ELC

Set among 10 acres of native prairie, rain gardens, butterfly gardens and mature trees, the McColl Pond Environmental Learning and Event Center (ELC) is a picture-perfect location for weddings, graduation parties, anniversary celebrations, holiday gatherings and many other private occasions. 

The ELC was designed through a naturally resourceful approach that kept sustainability at the forefront, but didn't sacrifice visual appeal or functionality. Powered by solar energy and geothermal systems for temperature regulations, the ELC offers comfort to guests without adversely impacting the environment. Walls are made from wheat products, counter tops from recycled plastic, and cabinets from sunflower seeds. A vegetated rooftop collects and filters storm water.

The ELC is located in Savage Community Park.
