On Monday, August 18, we will be working at the Van Atta Road canoe landing at the Harris Nature Center. We will be improving the existing dock structure and improving the existing pathway down to the water. The goal is to provide a higher quality access to the Red Cedar River for anyone wishing to use the river at that point.
We will be using wood timbers to frame in the steps down the bank and wood bark to fill in the steps. The design is a basic one commonly used to control erosion on pathways on slopes.
If we do not complete the work on Monday we will finish it on Tuesday, August 19. Please RSVP for exact times to start prior to this activity. All maintenance work has been approved by the Meridian Township Parks and Recreation Department.
