In 2003, the Foundation partnered with the Greenbelt Conservancy to establish the Richmond County Savings Foundation Exhibits at the new Greenbelt Nature Center.

The Center acts as a gateway to the Greenbelt and Staten Island’s natural history and offers the community a vantage point to appreciate Staten Island’s unique natural resources. The public center is free of charge and serves 20,000 people annually through public programs, class trips, meetings, events, parties, and more. State of the art technology was incorporated into the Center in the form of touch screen monitors, terrain-model projection demonstrations, dioramas, models and audio programs. In 2012, the Foundation provided additional funding for exhibit upgrades, including more hands-on interactives that have enhanced the visitor experience and environmental education programming.
