The Manistique Community Treehouse project will be a 700 square foot ADA wheelchair accessible six sided building. Ramps and platforms will lead from the sidewalk to the structure and surrounding decks. The structure, situated 10 feet off of the ground, is nestled between a beautiful maple tree and a stellar cottonwood. The structure is completely powered by solar energy.
The Manistique Community Treehouse Center promotes the diversity of individuals in the local community, the mental and physical well-being of youth, and inclusion of people of all ages and abilities. The Treehouse provides programs with a unique focus on inclusion for persons with disabilities, the promotion of collaboration with multicultural understanding, and diversity in the counseling process. The Treehouse provides a safe, creative, supportive, learning environment through many programs.

Richard Adamo serves on the advisory board.
