Alvin H. Butz Inc. was recently awarded the contract to build a $2 million amphitheater for Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Kempton.
The work is the second phase of a four-phase plan to improve the sanctuary as part of its "School in the Clouds" campaign.
The project will include a new outdoor classroom as well as an extensive Americans with Disabilities Act trail that leads from the new amphitheater to the existing visiting center.
The amphitheater will seat 250 and will include a covered stage with sound and lighting.
Butz said it will use natural materials that blend in seamlessly with the surrounding woods and other green features in the construction.
The project will begin in November and take an estimated five months to complete, with an expected completion date of spring 2015, pending funding.
