Amite River Wildlife Sanctuary

The most pressing need is to install bog bridges over wet areas on the trails so that visitors have access to the entire area. These bog bridges are a fairly simple design. Basically, for a 12-foot section, 3 pressure treated 6x6” posts are laid on the ground. They are held in place with 3’ pieces of rebar. Then pressure-treated 2x12” planks are laid across them and bolted into place.  There are at least 4 places where we have an immediate need.

We also need a couple of small bridges built but that may be a more serious undertaking. A scout could do one bridge or several as a part of their project.
