Cool Springs Education Center
Cool Springs is an innovative corporate educational agrarian campus being developed by OFS Brands, located 8.35 miles west of the city of Huntingburg on an 600 acre site. The property is being developed as a multipurpose corporate facility that will include several building structures, a man-made reservoir, marina, hiking trails, and various other features. Cool Springs is currently utilized for the education of our customers on the company’s environmental heritage and policies, environmental preservation of the site, and customer recreation. OFS Brands is also employing Cool Springs as an opportunity to promote education for local scout troops and other local student learning activities.
The Cool Springs campus has extensive open meadows and hardwood forests with the predominant tree species being oak, maple, hickory, and beech. The open meadows were previously used for agriculture and are now covered primarily with native grasses and low height species, and for several miles in all directions, the surrounding landscape is exclusively agricultural, featuring row crops, pastures and woodlands. LEED-NC Silver Certification was achieved in September 2010 on the first structure of the Cool Springs campus, which is the Horse Barn and Storage Facility.
