Located minutes from the National Harbor, Alexandria, and downtown Washington, D.C., the Accokeek Foundation’s Education Center was designed with a vision of sustainability at its core.

With green features such as a living roof, well-designed daylighting, FSC certified wood, and rainwater reuse, we are able to minimize the short and long term impact of this building on the surrounding ecosystems, as well as regional demands and air, water, and light pollution. Surrounded by expansive views of the National Colonial Farm, pastoral fields, the Potomac River, and Mount Vernon, the Center and the surrounding grounds are an ideal location to host a special event, corporate retreat, or organizational meeting.
