The wellspring project is complete. The water source has been raised, and a safe access built. Thank you TJP GENERAL CONSTRUCTION! Moisture-loving plants are now growing next to the pump house. We added gravel to level the access way, a bench for a quick rest, and an infographic that explains what an artesian well is and how it works.
The retaining wall is finished! The goal for the retaining wall is to keep the lawn from encroaching onto the beach. There was a retaining wall on the beach in the past, but it was removed instead of being repaired. Overtime, we had lost much of the beach. We also hope that the retaining wall will help deter the geese from en-crouching.
We widened the beach to 25’, added fresh sand, and cleared out all of the weeds growing in the sand. The retaining wall will be low - a sitting wall. Just high enough to discourage the geese and maintain a clean separation between the lawn and the beach. We also made the beach accessible to people with mobility challenges.
We are excited about preserving the beach for generations to come. Many people and businesses have donated to help make this a reality! Thank you to all!
