A nature center in Bucks County is celebrating the life of one of their volunteers, who made a major impact during his time there.

Churchville Nature Center, located at 501 Churchville Lane in Churchville, recently announced the passing of a local man who made a major impact on their operations over the years.

George W. Belfield, a resident of Southampton, was the center’s lead volunteer in carpentry and design. Over the years, he oversaw the building of several bird blinds, bird feeders, indoor exhibits, woodsheds, the center’s wedding arch, the memorial gardens entrance, and all of the wooden benches.

“He was a soft spoken, kind man, beloved by both the staff and the volunteers who knew him and got the chance to work with him and learn from him. Many of us called him a friend and will miss him dearly,” the center said online.

“An avid hiker and birder, George participated in our old backpacking/canoe trips and joined many of our bird census teams though the years, but it was in his workshop here at CNC (renamed a few years ago to George’s Lair) that he spent most of his time.”
