Max Moore Memorial Treehouse

The Max Moore Memorial Tree House is a universally accessible tree house that will be built along the Saranac River Trail in Plattsburgh. Equipped with a special ramp, the tree house will offer recreation opportunities to the entire community, including those with limited mobility. The universal design concepts that will be utilized for the construction of the tree house will allow access by wheelchairs and strollers, offering a rare opportunity for everyone, including the disabled and young children, to enjoy a real tree house overlooking the scenic Saranac River.

Several years ago Plattsburgh pediatrician, Dr. Heidi Moore, dreamt of building a tree house with a special ramp for her then 5-year old son, Max, who relied on a wheelchair for his mobility, in the hopes that he might come close to experiencing one of her favorite childhood passions – climbing trees. Max is no longer with us, but YOU can make the dream come true for others. Help raise funds to build the universally accessible Max Moore Memorial Treehouse on Plattsburgh’s Saranac River Trail for children and adults of all ages and all abilities to enjoy.
