New Nature Signs on the Lakeshore Trail
The Lakeshore Trail has become a popular place for campers to "go for a walk". It is a 1 mile long, graveled path along the shoreline of James Lake/ Little James Lake and it is easy walking. It covers some beautiful scenery, including at least five different natural communities.
The five new nature interpretive signs provide information about those five natural communities: swamp, hemlock grove, creek, lakeshore, and marsh.
1 - Hardwood Swamp Community
2 - Hemlock Grove Community
3 - Beaver Creek Community
4 - Lakeshore Community
5 - Marsh Community
I wrote the material for the signs, Brent designed the signs, Del built the frames, and I installed the frames and signs.
It is my desire that these signs will help trail walkers slow down and learn a few things about these natural communities. Each sign also has Bible verse and/or a quote to think about.
The project has been funded by a grant from the Plum Creek Foundation. The Plum Creek Company owns a lot of forest land in Wisconsin and their foundation supports "projects of community organizations that improve the welfare and quality of life in the communities that Plum Creek serves".
