St. Jones Reserve Boardwalk Open and Ready for Visitors!

Written on: November 30th, 2011 in ResearchSt. Jones ReserveStewardship

The St. Jones Reserve Trail Boardwalk has a new look!  You may recall that the main boardwalk at the St. Jones Reserve was undergoing some renovations.  Those renovations are complete and the boardwalk is back open to visitors.  The new look includes wooden decking with more space between the deck planks and three sections of grating.  Both practices allow more sunlight to penetrate to the marsh surface.  The increased amount of sunlight reaching the marsh surface should decrease the amount of impact the boardwalk has on plant growth.  Come visit the Reserve and explore the marsh by taking a walk on the renovated boardwalk.  The trails are open 7 days a week from dawn until dusk.  Always be cautious of hunting seasons.  The best time to walk the entire trail is on a Sunday when there is no hunting.  For more information about the Reserve visit our website.
