The Air Quality
Learning Station (AQLS) is a first-of-its-kind installation. It combines air
monitoring technology with a solar-panel flower array to off-set the energy
used. The purpose of the installation is to prompt visitors to think
about air quality, a vital, but invisible, community resource.
The AQLS is located in First Ward Park. Reduce air pollution during your visit by using light rail (hop off at the 7th Street Station) or the new protected bike lanes to access the park! Before heading out, learn more about the pollutants that the AQLS measures: particulate matter and ozone.
Thank you to the North Carolina Division of Air Quality for sponsoring the AQLS.
