With funding from New York State DEP, Jamie Purinton designed an outdoor classroom within the Arboretum’s Woodland Walk. This classroom is sited in a natural amphitheater space with field stone benches and native woodland plantings. The stonework is designed to tell the geological story of this place where glaciers dragged stones over numerous miles before they were halted by warming temperatures. All of the stones used on this project are weathered stones without quarry marks.
