ABOUT

Looking for a Great Venue in Carlsbad?

The AHLF Discovery Center overlooks the Agua Hedionda Lagoon, a 400-acre estuary and wetland situated in Carlsbad, California. The Discovery Center is a 3,800 square foot building that features both indoor and outdoor facilities.

The Discovery Center has hosted a wide variety of events, including lectures, business meetings, anniversaries, birthday parties, gala dinners, book signings, yoga classes, fundraisers and weddings. 

This intersection in Carlsbad is at the tip of the spear, the very vanguard of technology for clean water, drinking water, emission free energy and environmental stewardship, for not just Carlsbad but for our state and our nation." – Peder Norby, April 7, 2014

 

An 8.9 kW solar system installed in our parking lot and on the roof above the Executive Office provides the Discovery Center with 45% of its electric needs!

 

The gutters and downspout connected to the roof of the Executive Office collects rainwater and spreads it across the patio pavers. Rain water seeps into the soil, sustaining the garden and helping protect the quality of Agua Hedionda Lagoon.
