It's the amazing, one-of-a-kind, Aldo Leopold Legacy Center , located in Baraboo, Wisconsin. THE GREENEST BUILDING ON EARTH!!! Welcome, welcome, to this net zero energy building, meeting all of its energy needs on site!!! Save your quarters, this virtual tour is free!!!
No bearded ladies, but the center is carbon neutral, has an energy-efficient design and uses locally harvested wood products.
Oh, and by the way, Baraboo is also home to Circus World, "America's Circus Museum."
Written and compiled by staff writers and editors, GOVERNING View is an on-the-ground, and sometimes behind-the-scenes, look at the topics we're covering in print and online. From notes on what's up in statehouses, county courthouses and city halls, to encounters with people, places and things, GOVERNING View is a window into the side of state and local government you don't always see.
