Because we are serious conservationists, we want our newest dome to be a healthy home and be built in an Earth friendly manner. Tessa is President of Kids for Saving Earth, on the Board of Healthy Child, Healthy World and was on the board of Beyond Pesticides for 15 years.

Dennis's deceased spouse, Senator Janet Johnson, died of a brain tumor.  Tessa's 11 year-old- son,  founder of Kids for Saving Earth, died from a brain tumor and her husband died from prostate cancer.  Because of this, we are both dedicated to educating people about the connection between man-made toxins in the environment to one's health, as well as alerting people to the importance of sustainable living for our planet.

Bear Creek Dome also is a handicapped accessible design.

We have made efforts to create a structure that is environmentally friendly and healthy. At the beginning of each section look for the Kids for Saving Earth logo to learn about our efforts to build "green". This is where we will explain some of the environmental choices we have made.
