The Western Wildlife Corridor team has been hard at work this summer on the Kirby Nature Center, future home for us, our events and activities.
Wow, where to begin?
-Tile is being installed in both ADA bathrooms and a kitchen slate floor will be laid.
– A new roof will soon be done.
– Kitchen cabinets should be here in two weeks for installation.
-Scraped Burch flooring will be installed after roof repair is complete. The back museum room and office will have floors sanded, and varnished soon. Doors should be hung as well.
-The chimney will be renovated with tuck pointing and new insert.
-A wildflower prairie is planned thanks to the generosity of Oxbow Inc.
-A nature Playscape is planned
-We will have native nut and fruit trees as well as a walnut grove picnic area
-Local Girl Scouts presented us with plans to build a wildlife observation area for viewing wild birds, insects and other local flora and fauna from a picture window. They have many bird feeders and will plant native trees, shrubs and plants and create a rain garden as well.
We wish to express our greatest gratitude to all our outstanding and generous workers who made this happen
