A Regular Helping of GREENS

A green roof with grassy hills and skylights

This may look like your typical grassy hill. But don't be fooled! It's actually home to super-secret spies who camouflage their hideout with foliage.

Don't be ridiculous, Dex. This is The Living Roof at the California Academy of Science in San Francisco! It's for a bunch of scientists — not spies! Their building is totally sustainable and they put a green roof on it — all kinds of things live up there. The soil and plants help regulate the building's temperature and those skylights open up to let heat out!
