I’m excited to get to know this new wheelchair accessible trail and boardwalk at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center. This new trail network is the result of years of planning and now physical work on the land. It’s part of a plan that incorporates ponds to sequester stormwater, which currently exacerbates ravine erosion into Lake Michigan. These ponds will also create wetland habitat and additional learning and wildlife viewing opportunities for visitors. Learn more about the details here on the Schlitz Audubon website.
I took this picture on the new boardwalk path a couple weeks ago. This section should be completed before the snow flies!
