Need $$$ Contributions to Build Outdoor Classroom with Living Roof

It took over four years to raise $30,000 for Boone Watershed Partnership to pay for the design and materials to build a bridge with volunteer labor that will link the wetlands area to the woodlands hiking trail across Sinking Creek.

A 20′ x 30′ outdoor classroom with a living roof placed near the wetlands similar to the image below is estimated to cost at least another $25,000.  Please help build an outdoor classroom soon by making an online donation and specify “Jacob’s Park” as the purpose:
