THE FRIENDS OF SILVER FALLS
Once cramped in a small corner of the Silver Falls main lodge this nonprofit organization needed a better space so they could succeed in their mission to promote, preserve, and enhance the historical, natural, and recreational resources within Silver Falls park.
ARCIFORM was hired to restore an old cabin within the park into what is now the South Falls Nature Store.
Turning an old log structure into a store required extensive weatherization and chinking of the logs. A hydronic radiant heating system was integrated into a new concrete slab base. Display cabinets were built using clear vertical grain Douglas fir salvaged straight from the park. All new lighting and security were installed.
Friends of Silver Falls now have a space of their own in which store sales have exceeded expectations and visitors of the park have another destination.
