Share this Post

The new master plan embraces and continues Prentice Bloedel’s commitment to conservation, sustainability and visitor experience. His adaptive management approach has been embraced with the objective of balancing visitor experience and ecological performance.

Improvements completed in 2019 include:

  • Redesigned arrival sequence and pathways providing more diverse experiences and providing an increase in the length of undisturbed shoreline and the area of marginal vegetation
  • Installed longer and more gently sloping paths to provide more diverse experiences including pollinator meadow, marsh, water, pond margins and forest edge
  • Modified the relationship of the trail to the shoreline and highlight other landscape features
  • Introduced secondary loops and spur pathways to provide for access to quieter and more contemplative places on the water’s edge
