Special Projects

Wetland Walkway Sponsorship

Imagine a floating “trail” that takes you over platforms out into the wetland! The platforms will be lined with plant mats that create microcosms for insects and other wetland wildlife, and offer a unique feature in Explore the Wild. The Wetland Walkway will be about 400 feet of walkway into this natural world.

Thanks to initial funding from the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation for design, this project is ready to move forward once we secure construction funding of $50,000.
