The Johnson County Conservation Board received gold certification from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) organization for their Conservation Headquarters building and Conservation Maintenance Facility building. The gold designation is the highest honor awarded through the LEED system.

Some of the buildings’ green features include occupancy sensors for the lights, the use of recycled materials during construction and a computer monitored geothermal heating and cooling system.
