The grant comes from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and it will used to construct an outdoor learning pavilion at Anita Purves Nature Center. From the press release:
The project will construct a 30 by 40 foot pavilion with retractable sides for multi-season use. It also includes a fire place, all-gender restroom, storage for program supplies, site interpretation, drinking fountain, and grills.
Paths for accessibility will safely connect pavilion users to the nature center and nature playscape, as well as the new 26-space parking area with solar-powered street lights. A nearby rain garden will be constructed for infiltrating stormwater runoff from the new parking lot spaces, and trees will also be planted on site as part of the project.
