MISSION

The mission of the Radix Center is to promote ecological literacy and environmental stewardship through educational programs based around demonstrations of sustainable technologies. At the Radix Center, we believe it is possible to meet human needs while simultaneously restoring ecosystems. Good environmental stewardship is rewarded by better health, wholesome food, and strong communities. The Radix Center teaches practical skills that can be applied to create environmental and economic sustainability. An emphasis is placed on issues of food security, health, and the remediation of contaminated soils.

Floating Island Release Party! July 14, 2018
The Radix Ecological Sustainability Center along with the Albany Water Board present:
Floating Island Release Party!

On Thursday, July 26th at 10AM, we will celebrate the release of the Radix Center’s solar-powered floating island – a floating constructed wetland designed to clean up combined sewer overflows in the Hudson River using living plants and beneficial bacteria.  Through a combination of renewable energies and ecological design practices, the floating island demonstrates how it is possible to address pollution in our city with techniques that are sustainable, affordable, equitable, and educational. The construction of the floating island has been made possible through an Environmental Benefit Project grant from the Albany Water Board, and is a collaborative research effort between The Radix Center and students and professors from RPI, SUNY School of Public Health, Siena,and Skidmore Colleges.

The celebration will take place in Island Creek Park in Albany’s South End,near the intersection of Church and Broadway Streets. Canoes and kayaks will be available for close-up tours of the island.
