John Bunker Sands Wetland Center Wins 2014 AIA Dallas Honor Award

The John Bunker Sands Wetland Center serves as the hub of environmental and social interest for the 3,100 acres of man-made wetland habitat on the Rosewood Seagoville Ranch property. The Center provides opportunities for research, education, wildlife observation and community gathering. The 5,400 SF facility fulfills many roles including a staging and exhibit hall for interactive exhibits; a fully equipped research lab for use by research groups to study the wetland plants and animals; a classroom for hands-on educational and research use; on-site manager office; and an observation deck to view the wetlands. The building also houses restrooms, a prep kitchen to accommodate larger events and private sleeping quarters for research students.
