gusdeedspavilionAbove is an artist’s rendering of the future Gus Deeds Memorial Teaching Pavilion to be built in 2015 near the Nature Camp Canteen. The building is designed to be constructed from re-purposed and local materials. There are numerous opportunities to get involved in its construction, including monetary donations, material donations, and a community build.

The NCF will send out a letter in early 2015 sharing more details on ways people can get involved.

The pavilion design and construction lead is provided by Lithic Construction of Charlottesville VA. The open-air, gazebo-like structure will be accessible for all to use on rainy and sunny days for class instruction, playing music, and spending time with friends. The pavilion will fill a key need for classroom space during bad weather and will also serve as a gathering spot for campers and counselors during recreation periods on sunny days.

Online donations to the Gus Deeds Memorial fund may be made here.
