With the very generous support of many individuals, both financially and with their time, and with grants received from various organizations and institutions, including The Wright Family Foundation and the USDA, we are ALMOST finished with our building addition - the new David Remling Science Laboratory.
This past year we attached a double-wide modular building to the existing River Center building, hooked up the electric service, water, septic line, installed a furnace, painted, finished off a connecting hallway, repaired the roof, purchased and installed a handicap accessible ramp, had a parking area paved and installed new siding.
We also had a trout tank (donated by Trout Unlimited and setup by students of Cobleskill College’s Fish & Wildlife program. We also had an observational bee-hive that was built by the late Dave Remling installed with the guidance of local bee-keeper Anne Frey. Our new science lab looks great! We have a boatload of microscopes, a large projection screen, nice table tops to work on, and a handicap accessible bathroom.
We still have some work to do, including: extend the deck from the old building to the new building, Some electrical work, install a beautiful new sign and a trail register box. Our back porch also needs some work.
So, while we have accomplished a lot this year, we continue to need your support and volunteers to help finish off these tasks.
