How can one “green” a home? Ben Cilley, instructor at the Ocean County Vocational Technical School District Academy of Law and Public Safety, will explain at this weekend’s Science Saturday at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences.

Cilley will present “Building a Green Home: How You Can Help the Environment” from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 24 in the main building of the Foundation, at 120 Long Beach Blvd., Loveladies.

“Ben brings the wonder of the environment to kids at LBIF in the summer, but in the winter he will join us to explain how to make your house more environmentally friendly,” said Foundation marketing and programs associate Jillian Schratz. “He explores a variety of construction techniques and technologies that can be used to reduce the environmental impact of your new or existing home with both high and low tech ideas to fit any budget.”

Science Saturday, now in its 12th season, invites experts to speak about pressing scientific, ecological and sustainability issues that directly affect the shore environment and community.
