Turrell Way

This recognition monument stands at the intersection of the road from the main camp entrance to the Welcome Center (Admin office) and the road that runs along the eastern edge of the Big Tree Field up to the dining hall. The latter road is named "Turrell Way." We got support from the Turrell Foundation to build and pave these roads, and of course we've been supported by Turrell many times. By the way, we all say "Turrell" with the accent on the second syllable (so that it rhymes with the police chief in The Wire - Burrell), but apparently that's incorrect. The name is pronounced so that it rhymes with "furl."
