Project Description

The canopy walkway was established under a 25 year concession with the Botanical Gardens as part of an overall effort to continue to grow the Garden’s ability to attract and educate visitors as to the importance of our native forest. Voted as one of the Top 10 new attractions in 2008 the canopy walkway is becoming a regular part of local school outtrips and is very well received by faculty, staff, locals and visitors. The walkway also serves to support 1/2 of the Education Director’s salary along with 1/2 of the Gatekeepers salary while providing guided educational tours of the forest canopy.
