The enhanced climate and humidity control, assures greater preservation capacity for the many artifacts recovered from archaeological excavations in the State Parks System. The Collections Center is a state of the art LEED Silver Certified facility designed to support the implementation of a high quality environmentally responsive and sustainable preservation program.
