Giving history

The best part of this new community structure is that the funding, construction and materials were sourced locally in a sustainable manner.

One of the newest additions to Bowen Island's Museum and Archives is the arbour and outdoor gallery with built-in seating on one side and gallery panels on the other side (to be installed). 

The best part of this new community structure is that the funding, construction and materials were sourced locally in a sustainable manner. The Museum and Archives received a grant from the Community Foundation to provide the funding to get the Amy Adams-designed project under way. John Reid stepped in to donate harvested cedar trees from the Grafton lands.

 The lumber, under the supervision of Greg Cormier our local building inspector and West Vancouver Secondary Carpentry Program Teacher, along with his students milled and constructed the arbour. This is a real win for the community which will not only benefit from its use, but knowing it was all created locally.
