Schramm Park Treehouse Classroom

A Classroom in the Trees

The Treehouse Classroom and Interactive Stream/Canyon Ponds project is the next key step to position Schramm Park SRA to meet the NGPC’s goal of  making it the “ecological and natural educational center of the Venture Parks.” Following the successful improvements and expansion that created the Schramm Education Center (formerly the Aksarben  Aquarium), the addition of the treehouse classroom and repurposing of existing Canyon Ponds into an interactive stream will provide unique, immersive experiences for visitors to learn about the area’s natural features and experience the beauty of Southeast Nebraska.

Branches cover many subjects. They are a secondary stem from the main axis. Branches can refer to botany as in a tree, streamflow as in a stream that flows into a larger stream, a division of a family descending from a particular ancestor, or a method of organizing offshoots from a point of origin.

Branches can be used as an organizational framework. A central axis with spaces that “branch” off helps delineate different functions.
