Groundbreaking for Slaughter Beach Marsh Boardwalk Project

Ground was broken last week for a saltmarsh boardwalk project at Slaughter Beach.  The Marvel Saltmarsh Preserve Boardwalk Project will enable visitors to walk out onto the saltmarsh to view and experience the ecosystem and its natural resources up close.  The Y-shaped boardwalk will provide access to a marsh pool at one end and a view of nearby constructed osprey nest platform from an elevated observation platform at the other end.  The 109-acre Marvel Saltmarsh Preserve was donated to the Delaware Nature Society by the Marvel Family of Milford in 1988.
