Community Classroom Project

Community Classroom Project

The Community Classroom Project is the Charlevoix Conservation
District's plan to convert an existing 25'x26' space into a useable 
mulit-purpose classroom facility.  The space will be used by the 
district and its conservation partners to increase educational 
offerings in Charlevoix County, and surrounding areas.

Funding is still being requested to assist the district in recovering half
of the project total, approximately $9,000.  Furnishings including 
meeting tables and stack-able chairs are still needed to complete the 
room, along with basic technology to assist presentation & meeting
needs.  An anonymous donation was made by an area organization
to assist with furnishing our kitchenette (towels, silverwear, bowls, 
tupperware, cups and coffee mugs).  Nature paintings were donated
by local artist, Diane Stzrelinski, to decorate the new room with local
conservation art.  A beautiful wooden podium was also donated by
Mr & Mrs Ed & Diane Stzrelinski.
