Sioux Lookout timber frame builder, Neville Bodsworth, is in the rainforest of South America working with a team of other members of the Timber Frame Guild (http://tfguild.org) constructing the Central Suriname Nature Reserve Visitor Center. Learn more about this special project and this group of volunteers by visiting http://tfguild.org/suriname/
A daily log of the raising of this building and picture display of the work being completed can be viewed at http://22.214.171.124/suriname/index.htm. The picture display requires Macromedia Shockwave to be viewed.
As well, one of the timber framers is maintaining a blog of his experience as part of this team. This blog contains pictures and stories about the work being undertaken. This story can be seen at http://jungleframe.blogspot.com/
One link from the blog is to the story of the Raleighvallen Rainforest School told by the four young people who live with their parents at the Central Suriname Nature Reserve. These students share their stories about living in the rainforest and being home-schooled can be seen at http://mysite.verizon.net/vze6xt7v/index.html. This exciting view of their world provides very special and unique insights into the environment and conditions where this new building is being constructed. It also provides a very important model for other students to share their stories about where they live and attend schools.
