Project Details

The Education Pavilion consists of classroom-lecture space, restrooms, break room, storage and a covered porch area. The Overlook Pavilion is located at the edge of the salt marsh and provides elevated observation space of the intercoastal and the surrounding wetland forests. The buildings are constructed of wood frame with open trusses, rafters and standing seam to blend into the site's natural environment. These structures are located within an intracoastal environmental preserve which also includes picnic areas and nature trails.
