(BEANBLOSSOM) - Beanblossom Bottoms Nature Preserve will close beginning March 26 and remain closed until renovations of the boardwalk are complete.

John Lawrence, assistant director of Sycamore Land Trust told the Herald Times about one-third of the front portion of boardwalk that leads into the nature preserve will be removed and replaced with a durable, non-slip plastic material - used for boat docks - on a wooden framework. The open grid structure will allow water to drain through it.

The front section of boardwalk, closest to the parking area off of Woodall Road at the Sycamore Land Trust preserve, is the most used area and is where much of the wetland property is located and often floods.

One of the four observation areas also will be renovated using the non-slip material.

The project will be paid for with a $250,000 grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. The work will be done by staff members and volunteers, including employees of Vectren, which helped pay for the original educational trail at the nature preserve.
