The boardwalk repair is underway!  We researched long and hard to find the most sustainable solution to this problem, and we came up Ipe.  Pronounced EE-pay, the decking product is a sustainably harvested wood which has properties more similar to concrete than other woods (it even sinks!).  This material has been lasting for decades in some of the toughest environments around the country like the everglades.

We are excited to be underway, and thankful for our donors who helped us raise the money for the materials, and our partnership with Springfield Greene County Parks whose talented team of carpenters are installing the project and saving thousands of dollars in additional costs. Watershed Committee 2015 Donors.
