Turn Back Time (TBT) is a nature-based outdoor education center in Paxton, MA. We worked with TBT to develop more accessibility and learning space for their classes. To accomplish this, we conducted interviews with experts in 2 areas; nature-play education and local wildlife. Additionally, our team researched inclusive trail guidelines and nature-play space principles and design. For construction; we utilized stonework and carpentry skills. To ensure the effectiveness of our design, we also studied how children in different ages and classes played within the space. The result is a bridge that spans a difficult area to walk, alongside an outdoor classroom/playground with educational resources.
