Visit a Compost Demonstration Site

The Master Composter Recycler program operates three composting demonstration sites in Clark County where visitors can view different systems of home composting and how the compost can be used to grow lawn and garden plants. Master Composter Recycler volunteers maintain these demonstration sites. The sites are also used for workshops. 

The demonstration sites at Pacific Park and CASEE/Wildlife Botanical Gardens are open to the public for free, every day during daylight hours. The demonstration site at Heritage Farm is open to the public during workshops and events.
