Hyperion Environmental Learning Center

Northern Light Productions produced 19 video and audio programs, 9 animations, and 14 interactive exhibits for the Environmental Learning Center at the Hyperion Wastewater Treatment Plant. The primary audience is school groups and teachers, with the goal of raising visitors' awareness of the impact of human activity on the environment in natural and urban settings.

Visitors learn about water sources, wastewater cycles, and recycling of human-made waste. Videos, interactives, and animations introduce viewers to the processes the city uses to treat waste water and solids, creating fertilizer, composting materials and reducing the impact of wastewater on the Santa Monica Bay. Audio programs share the stories of community members and city workers who, through the city’s programs, help to protect the environment and reduce waste.
