The structure will be located at the edge of the woodlands, with a building footprint of approximately 1,750 sq.ft.  Our goal is to utilize green design and construction concepts, to comply with LEED certification requirements.  This project was granted approval by the Mayor and Borough Council of Glen Rock.

Our building will support individualized small classes (environment, nature, ecology, horticultural and associated arts), with office space, work area for small equipment repairs, shelter in inclement weather, storage of resource material, and a bathroom facility.  The building would be used primarily by Friends of the Glen Rock Arboretum with access available to other groups for a variety of functions.

Friends of the Glen Rock Arboretum, Inc. is a not-for-profit, 501( c)3 volunteer organization, dedicated to the preservation, maintenance and development of the Arboretum.
