A Facelift for the Boardwalk

Written on: September 23rd, 2011 in ResearchSt. Jones ReserveStewardship

If you have been to the St. Jones Reserve recently you may have noticed that the boardwalk is being renovated.  This is exciting news as the Reserve will be a demonstration site for alternative decking material which allows more light to reach the marsh surface and will hopefully lead to more plants growing under the boardwalk.  In addition to alterantive decking, other areas of decking will be replaced with treated wood, but the spacing between the planks will be 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch which will also allow more light to penetrate to the marsh surface.  Because of the renovations, the St. Jones Reserve Trail will temporarily be closed until the project is complete for the safety of our visitors.  However, we encourage you to visit the trail after the project has been completed to experience the salt marsh from the renovated boardwalk.  We greatly appreciate your patience and look forward to your future visits.
