Remember building forts, catching frogs, splashing in mud puddles, and climbing trees?
Unfortunately, these things are foreign to many kids today and are often unattainable for those restricted to wheelchairs.
Now, image being able to spend time in the trees surrounded by nature no matter your abilities!
The Sanctuary is soaring into the trees! We dared to dream...we have the Treehouse Masters...now we need you! We have raised the funds for phase one of the construction, but need your support will make this dream a reality and create incredible outdoor experiences for everyone.
The Treehouse: $50,000-$100,000: TheTreehouse-Classroom will be constructed by the professionals of Nelson Treehouse & Supply (Animal Planet’s Treehouse Masters). It will be nestled between a Beech tree and a majestic Sycamore tree creating a magical space for learning, observation, and a bird’s-eye view of the forest. The classroom will be accessible by bridge for wheelchairs and by stairs from a hiking trail.
Eagle’s Nest: $25,000-$45,000: Along the bridge will be landings that will serve as teaching stations. One of the landings is modeled after aneagle’s nest and will be a constant work in progress! Children will be able to add sticks to the nest to aid in its design. This will also be the launch point for staff to send our birds to soaring into the classroom for presentations.
Flight Deck: $10,000-$20,000: The flight deck will wrap around a Beech tree and link to the Treehouse-Classroom. It will create an open outdoor learning space and will be the landing spot for our birds soaring in for a program.
Educational Encounters: $5,000-$7,500: Visitors will enjoy a bird’s-eye view and experience the forest from many places along the bridge. The accessible path will zigzag through the woods and down the slope with three landings for educational encounters plus a firepole for a fun exit to the forest floor.
Forest Adventure Bridge Trail: $1,000-$2,500: Getting to the Treehouse-Classroom will be half the fun. Thebridge will start at ground level, but as the terrain descends into the riparian forest environment, the visitors rise into the treetops. The walkway to the classroom will be a forest adventure within itself.
