The Nevin Welcome Center is really starting to look like a building- with a ceiling, floors and walls!  The first floor of the building has been "tented" to allow workers to continue working on interior tasks such as installing utility and electrical lines. Outside the building, the foundation for the roof is being constructed - this foundation is important as it will support a rooftop garden and solar panels. 

The progress is exciting to watch - we invite you to come see the changes in person.

Exciting progress on the Nevin Welcome Center this past week - with the roof taking shape and more support columns going up.  The bridge over the bioswale is also coming along well.
