Plan Drawing by Matthew Ninivagg

Plan Drawing

The Quassaick Creek Nature Center aims to re-establish a relationship between residents of Newburgh and their underutilized amenity, the Quassaick Creek. Centuries of industrial pollution have rendered both the creek and its adjacent flora virtually inaccessible. This new nature center provides a destination along the Quassaick for residents of Newburgh to critically engage with the history of the site and experience the natural landscape, both actively and passively, through community gardens, an educational facility, a cafe, and a laboratory, connected through a system of bridging pathways which allow visitors to walk among the trees.
