Eco-focused Community

The silver generation is more green than ever!

Growing up amid lasting effects of WWII and the Cold War, most boomers have a conservation mindset. The term "green" may be newer slang, but the strongly held belief of protecting resources is woven into the hearts & minds of many of us. Active Living communities are stepping up in environmentally impactful ways.  


Eco-minded boomers share one or more of the following preferences in Active Living:


Reflect Lifestyle

  • Resort-relaxing or park style

  • Green or open-space surroundings 


Engage Socially

  • Gardening, bird-watching or other outdoor
