This For-Mar Nature Preserve Treehouse is used as a classroom for Genesee County Parks. The design had to accommodate at least 30 children plus instructors and had to be barrier free for anyone with mobility challenges. More than 28,000 visitors have already experienced this space.
Located 30′ above Kearsley Creek, the treehouse is surrounded by black cheery, red oak, white oak, basswood and bitternut hickory trees. Due to its use as a public classroom, higher loading requirements for the floor platforms and ramps were required.
