The new boardwalk trail is ready to be officially opening. Marie Knapp talks about how it was a community that brought the Conservation Area into being, a community that began Friends of Hibou and now a community of volunteers that built the Boardwalk.
The Trail is officially opened when Evelyn Holley who is on the Friends of Hibou Committee, and Susan Tuohy, Bank Manager from TD Canada Trust, the funder of the materials necessary to build the Boardwalk, cut the yellow ribbon.
Bob talks about how the Boardwalk makes an area passable that would otherwise be underwater due to Beaver activity and nature. In spring the wetlands come to life.
The group enjoys walking along the 200 feet of Boardwalk built by volunteers and laid down late fall 2014.
Marie shows Susan where we walked in and how the trail system works. There are maps at all junctures on the trails and each map is placed so the reader is facing North to simplify map reading.
