Here are some PHOTOS of this past weekend’s boardwalk construction at Avatar Grove! [view photogallery here]
Thanks to the hard work of many volunteers and the generous support from Sitka (who've raised the funds for the last 2 rounds of wood - amazing!!) we've managed to finish a few more key pieces in our push to launch the trail by the end of September! These improvements include a new 30ft walkway over exposed roots in the Upper Grove, finishing the stairs and railings at the new viewing platform, adding steps at two drop-offs in the Lower Grove, landscaping around the main entrance and trail, adding mesh traction to much of the boardwalk, and many other tasks! The popularity of Avatar Grove continues to grow exponentially (at times there were 30 cars there over the weekend!) making the boardwalk even more necessary to help protect the area's ecological integrity and improve visitor access and safety. There are still some key areas to finish before the launch but we’re making great headway thanks to YOUR support! We’d like to send our greatest thanks to all the incredible volunteers that came out and made the weekend possible: Matthew, Ben, Alex, Erin, Andrew, Olivia, Sherrie, Shiraz, Jordan, Tiara, Stu, Robyn, Roland, Kevin, Ian. Thanks again as well to Sitka for hosting events to raise money for the boardwalk!
