Los Angeles Environmental Learning Center at Hyperion

The Los Angeles’ Environmental Learning Center at Hyperion (ELC) was developed to bring textbook and classroom learning to life while showcasing the City’s commitment to protecting public health and the environment. The ELC addresses the need for increased public environmental education through docent lead tours of our environmental education exhibits which are compliant to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Visitors explore their role in Clean Water Treatment and Conservation, Watershed Protection and Solids Resources Management. Located at LA Sanitation’s Hyperion Water Reclamation Plant, and offered free to the community, the ELC’s engaging, interactive features aim to inspire future generations to protect the environment through sustainable practices and transform their neighborhoods into cleaner and greener places to live.
