Sechelt, British Columbia, Canada
To preserve, enhance and maintain natural areas of Sechelt and its surrounds with special emphasis on the Sechelt Heritage Forest and the Hidden Grove.
"Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a songbird will come." -- Chinese proverb
The Grove needed a place near the entrance to:
a) hold boards with maps, thank you's to donors, announcements, etc.
b) Hold a bench for resting while waiting or after a hike
c) just a place to be out of the rain
d) look nice as an entrance piece
Thanks to two great donors and the work of our Trailbuilders gang we got a wonderful structure.
Preparing the ground and installing the footing started on April 18th, 2012 and the metal roof was on by May 17th.
Final Staining and Sign installation finished on September 19, 2012
