Construction continues this spring at The Rocks in Bethlehem, with the extensive renovations inside the historic Carriage Barn well underway. Outside, the iconic "Rocks Red" color that was a symbol of the property for generations has been refreshed.

The 1884 Carriage Barn is undergoing renovations that retain its grand stone and shingle-style character while converting the interior into an energy-efficient, net-zero education center, with classrooms, event space, offices, and public facilities.

Fundraising also continues for the Forest Society North at The Rocks campaign, which seeks to raise $8.5 million to invest in capital improvements at The Rocks and to create an operating endowment for the future.

The renovated building is due to open to the public in the fall, starting at the Forest Society's annual meeting on Saturday, September 23.
