Belfast Bay Water Coalition has received a grant from the Maine Community Foundation to repair aging bog bridges on the Little River Community Trail.

Time and weather have taken their toll on many of the bog bridges that were built of hemlock 10 to 15 years ago. These bog bridges will be replaced with cedar planks that are expected to last much longer.

A $5,300 Maine Community Foundation Grant will be a big help to pay for the wood and hardware that is needed for repairs to about 90 bog bridges.

The BBWC trail crew will provide the tools and labor for the repairs and hopes to have many of the bog bridges repaired or replaced by the end of the year.

This repair effort will make the Little River Community Trail safer and more accessible, leading to more outdoor actives for all, for a long time.
