Come experience the architecture, exhibits, and landscape of the award-winning Jones Beach Energy & Nature Center. Explore the features that make this building "net zero," and learn about the landscape engineering that created the surrounding site and Jones Beach State Park. See why landscape is so central to past, present, and future discussions of energy infrastructure in New York State.

Exhibit text is available in Spanish and English. Two free audio tours are available in English, Spanish, Mandarin, and American Sign Language. The bike path runs from the Center to Captree State Park (~22 miles). The Center is not easily accessible by public transportation, so coming by car is recommended.
