Birch Island Restoration and Trail Project

The Town and Healthy Waters Labrador are partnering towards the completion of the Birch Island Restoration and Trail Project. The project is expected for completion in the Fall of 2017.

When finished, the Birch Island area will have a scenic walking trail along the creek for residents and visitors, a dedication to the former residents of Birch Island, natural environment interpretation, town history interpretation, and an outdoor classroom to assist students in learning and understanding the importance of environmental conservation and enhancement.
