ADA Pathway connecting Historic Sawmill Parking Area and Environmental Education Center / Park Office – Install drainage and pave existing pathway between two existing ADA paths installed in the 1970’s—a short circular pathway adjacent to the Sawmill Restroom and picnic area and the pathway connecting McConnell Hall EE Center and circumnavigating the Mansion / Park Office. By improving the surface of approximately one-mile of existing park trails along gentle grades, we would significantly improve the accessibility of Nolde Forest by creating a trail that connects our two primary park destinations

Pavilion for open air environmental education programming – Run electricity, pour concrete pad, and erect an approximately 32’ x 64’ timber frame pavilion with one stone end-wall on level, existing picnic area adjacent to Education Center parking area. Image attached as example, though image does not include desired stone end wall.

Stone masonry repairs to Historic 1830’s PA Bank Barn foundation wall – Decades of a roof without gutters led to water infiltration along stone foundation leading to partially collapsing wall (currently manageable at approximately 12’ wide by 10’ high) If left unrepaired, stone will continue to erode and will lead to large floor joist issues and far more costly repairs. Gutters have been installed on barn, and are being kept clear, in an effort to minimize further deterioration.

Historic PA Bank Barn Cold Cellar masonry wing wall repair – Wing wall of existing Cold Cellar is collapsing and requires excavation and stone masonry work

Replace wooden flooring in Historic 1800’s Sawmill first floor – Current flooring is sagging heavily and unsafe within structure that serves as an anchor and focal point in our main day use parking area for nearly all Nolde Forest visitors. Some stone masonry and support may be required.

Stone masonry repairs to Culvert at Historic Sawmill Raceway – Excavation and resetting of stone.

Stone masonry repairs to 1926 Nolde Forest Mansion Formal Garden and Stone Patio – stone walls and patios require minor repairs and regrouting to prevent further deterioration. (Photo attached.) Historic 1911 Forester’s House Retaining Wall Repair – Approximately one-quarter of the stone retaining wall in rear of residence is bulging and near failing. If the wall collapses it will cause damage to the residence and far greater work to repair. The project requires some excavation behind wall, installation of drainage, setting stones back in place, and repointing. Moss has been removed since wall began bulging in 2020 to reduce moisture buildup that is creating issue.
