Bridges to Nature Campaign
The 1,040 feet of floating boardwalk and wharves are outdoor classrooms and anaturalist’s tool to bridge people to nature. Made of wood in 1991, they have been weathered by forces of nature and are aging beyond repair. They have reached the end of their lives. These structures that bridge people to nature will be replaced with aluminum – safe, aesthetic, and guaranteed longevity. The campaign goal is to raise $450,000 by 2012.
