Balboa Park Green Team


With the goal of infusing sustainability practices into every level of operations, the Sustainability Program works with the Balboa Park Green Team to further the Park’s expertise in energy conservation and green business principles.

The Balboa Park Green Team was assembled in the fall of 2013 to enhance employee engagement in Park sustainability initiatives as a part of the Balboa Park Sustainability and Energy Management Action Plan.  We aim to have representation from each of the BPCP member institutions.

To date, the following institutions are represented on the Green Team:

  • Fleet Science Center
  • Japanese Friendship Garden
  • Mingei International Museum
  • San Diego History Center
  • San Diego Museum of Man
  • San Diego Natural History Museum
  • The Old Globe Theatre
  • San Diego Zoo Global

In 2014, the Green Team looked at waste in Balboa Park and in 2015 worked with the City of San Diego’s Environmental Services Department to increase waste diversion. In addition, BPCP collaborated with the San Diego Green Building Council to host a zero-waste event in June 2015.
