This hand-built bridge was generously donated as an Eagle Scout project. It crosses a small freshwater marsh that attracts many water-loving species, including wading birds, small lizards, and frogs. One of the most frequently seen herons in this area is the Green Heron, a green and maroon-colored bird about the size of a crow. It is one of the few species of birds that uses tools. Green Herons entice small fish to come in close by dropping "lures" onto the surface of the water, such as small feathers and insects.
