The Ada Christian School Outdoor Education project consists of a 2,591 square foot outdoor education classroom addition with an attached 586 square foot greenhouse space. Ada Christian School developed a comprehensive Outdoor Education program along with the greenhouse space designed to allow natural light and for outdoor projects to be brought in and explored. Several ponds were created to promote diverse aquatic environments, and historically accurate Native American and American Pioneer dwellings were constructed in addition to an educational barn auditorium. The new spaces created by the program provide daily hands-on experience with nature for elementary students:- A 24’ by 24’ heated greenhouse with vented roof- intended to start and foster plant growth and study- 136 linear feet of raised beds in mobile hoop houses to dramatically extend the growing season- Covered but open air learning spaces- Permanent and Vernal ponds to promote and accommodate diverse aquatic environments from amphibians to waterfowl- Michigan Native American dwellings and a cultural education area- Hand-hewn Michigan homestead/pioneer cabin with root cellar- Numerous pathways, raised bed gardens, two ponds, trees, sculptures and habitat tunnels- A natural prairie space room for prayer and contemplationThe greenhouse, being the most distinctive addition, is utilized in all seasons and heated for cooler temperatures, with a retractable, vented roof for warm days. The greenhouse willbe used to foster plant growth and study, bringing the outdoors closer to the classroom while simultaneously allowing natural light into the building.“These additions to the school grounds are to enhance the programs Ada Christian School has already been conducting. Heading outdoors leads to wonder and awe of our creation and, most importantly, our Creator. Through this project, Dan Vos Construction has built a great contribution to Ada Christian School and its students for generations to come.” - Melissa Brower, Ada Christian Principal
