The proposed Backcountry Outdoor Center project includes a building at Backcountry Base Camp: the Environmental Education Center. The building will be the launchpad for our community to engage with and learn in the outdoors. From a licensed nature preschool and staff offices to flexible indoor/outdoor spaces that will morph from gathering places to a weather shelter, the Environmental Education Center is the next great HRCA amenity. Once our staff's HQ is the Environmental Education Center, Base Camp will be open for more public hours to enjoy walking on our new interpretive trail and visiting our barnyard animals.
The Backcountry Outdoor Center Project also includes a hub of horse education including an indoor riding arena. The Equine Learning Center encompasses a place where a connection with horses from the ground to the saddle is an everyday occurrence. When days get shorter, and the weather turns unfavorable, the indoor arena will give our instructors and riders a consistent and safe area to progress skills with no limits.
