Birmingham-Southern College environmental center receives Legacy's 2005 organization of the year award

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—The Birmingham-Southern College Southern Environmental Center has been presented with the Legacy 2005 Environmental Education Organization of the Year award. The honor is in recognition of its commitment to environmental education.

The Southern Environmental Center (SEC) at Birmingham-Southern is the largest educational facility of its kind in Alabama and conducts an award-winning interactive museum and several ecoscape gardens. Its purpose is to show individuals how they can protect and improve their local environments.

Legacy was created in 1992 by a group of individuals dedicated to provide quality, factual environmental education materials with diverse views to the citizens of Alabama. Today the organization brings together state and federal agencies, businesses, environmental groups, associations and concerned citizens to provide comprehensive environmental education programs without duplicating efforts of other organizations.
