Lamoille County Nature Center 2023 Summer Pavilion Project Fundraiser

May contain: grass, plant, person, architecture, building, outdoors, shelter, tent, and camping

For over twenty years, the Lamoille County Conservation District LCCD has been providing nature-based education through the Lamoille County Nature Center (LCNC), Mud City Forest school and our Forest Camp program. Days spent in the fields and woods allow children to develop a long and lasting relationship with nature that will inspire our future leaders and stewards of the land. It is approximately 40 acres in size and provides trails that include educational signage.

Every year we improve the infrastructure and accessibility to the grounds and every year we provide more curriculum materials for the youth that participate in the camp programs. One element that is sorely lacking is a permanent shelter for campers and a space to hold meetings and workshops for the Lamoille County Conservation District. Currently we have a Tiny House for emergencies and a few canopies for cover. We feel that a pavilion that could hold at least 8 tables and a backdrop for presentations would make the LCNC a better destination spot for the public and our partners throughout the state.

We currently need to raise $20,000 to complete this project. The proposed pavilion would be a 16’ X 34’ structure with a gravel floor and back wall to block wind and allow for a projector screen. A plaque will be attached that will list large donors if they wish to be named. The LCNC currently has no power, but the pavilion would also provide a good opportunity for solar panel placement.

If $20,000 dollars is exceeded in this fundraiser know that your money will be used to update signage and general infrastructure of the LCNC.
