MANSFIELD – The Ohio Chicken Sanctuary soon will be ready to offer you a bird’s-eye check out of character to faculty groups and associates of the public, together with these with disabilities.

Design started Tuesday on a 600-square-foot treehouse, for people to walk inside and find out. It is currently being constructed by the Nelson Brothers from Animal Planet’s Treehouse Masters out of Seattle, Washington.

A “ribbon-cutting” was held at 4 p.m. Monday with associates of the Richland Space Chamber of Commerce and Financial Development, elected officials and some others, who utilised saws to cut a piece of wooden alternatively of the common ribbon.

The famed treehouse builders, who build structures internationally, will start out do the job Tuesday on the $380,000 treehouse classroom, nestled between a beech and sycamore tree at the 3774 Orweiler Road facility.

A position for anyone to enjoy

Gail Laux, government director at the nonprofit bird sanctuary, which she started in 1988, mentioned the treehouse, which is not enclosed, has an expansive roof if it should get started raining on the classroom. It is a little something she has envisioned for 20 years.

Gail Laux, executive director at the Ohio Bird Sanctuary, introduces members of the nonprofit's board. She said the handicapped-accessible treehouse classroom has been a dream for decades.

“We’ve always been trying to figure out the accessibility piece for the sanctuary, whether it can be been the bricks or the boardwalk, contemplating how can we make this a position most people can appreciate?” she explained. The classroom will be accessible by bridge for wheelchairs and by stairs from a climbing trail.

“Our intention was, ‘How do we do what we do, definitely do it better, but develop that sustainability piece for the foreseeable future?'” Laux reported. “Alternatively of it becoming an accessibility ramp, which is not enjoyable, the walkway itself is a journey by way of the woods. It can be not a switchback. It winds.”
