to everyone who gave to the fund to bring barrier-free access to Bow in the Clouds Preserve in Kalamazoo, and to those who contributed in memory of loved ones.
We expected to have the first phase completed in time for an October celebration event, but a shortage of contractors over the summer and other unforeseeable circumstances meant that we couldn’t complete the work on time.
Bow in the Clouds Preserve will be closed during the week of November 5, 2018 as we begin construction of the universal-access trail. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope that you will come back soon to give the trail a try.
We’re now looking forward to a celebration in the spring, when we expect to have the barrier-free loop trail finished, the benches in place, and the wetland viewing platform completed.
This gives us more time to make sure we have the details right and we hope that you will be pleased with the results.
