Climbing trees, jumping over fallen logs and making stick dams in slow moving streams are reminiscent of childhood play in a natural environment. There is a growing movement to reintegrate natural play areas in public and private spaces to incorporate more opportunities for imaginative play. Architects, city planners and many community organizations in Oregon have joined together to provide resources, guidelines and examples of natural themes. G.R. Morgan is proud to be a part of this movement and has taken part in the construction of multiple natural play areas. Our first endeavor was at Silver Falls State Park. Other projects include the Opal School at the Children's Museum, Sabin School and our most recently completed project at Champoeg State Park. We are constantly trying to be involved in projects related to nature play as this is a very valuable component of child development.
