Trailside Benches

Made from Douglas-fir trees grown on the center site, these benches provide visitors a moment to pause, rest and reflect with views to the Wilson River and the surrounding forest. An attractive textured bronze plaque is inset into the back of the bench and can be used to honor or memorialize individuals or organizations. Once placed in the trail system, the benches are maintained to ensure they are clean and attractive for center visitors. A limited number of rustic benches are available for a sponsorship gift at the $2,500 level.
