The chalet of Recoin in Chamrousse, former refuge of the French Alpine Club (CAF) and 1st guarded refuge of France since 1911, has been rehabilitated in the Environment and heritage Centre of Chamrousse with a reception and exhibition space.
The Environment House provides a shelter to the Environment organization of Chamrousse, which coordinates several parties in the territory. This organization supports the city council, the ski lifts company and the tourist office for any project involving environmental issues, education or entertainment.

The Environment organization works along with local partners on several topics:
- pastoralism and hiking trails
- fittings and works
- scientific monitoring (fauna, flora, geology)
- communication and entertainment
- education

Some actions have already been taken in Chamrousse to protect the environment and develop a sustainable resort:
- creation of new areas dedicated to pastoralism which could be used by the Tétras lyre birds to nest
- use of local species of seeds to cover the ski slopes
All year round, daily.
Buldging and layout can be seen from outside all year but inside visit only on Environment Centre opening hours.
