The Problem

We would like to provide easier access to our local river, for floating and otherwise interacting with the wildlife.

Our Plan

We have created a "ferryboat" shaped trolley to carry people to the put in point on our local river. We would like to enhance the trolley.

The Benefit

Here is how the project went:

We purchased a new sound system for the NFO MINNOW, to communicate and inform the folks using the shuttle service. It works fantastic!

Through this project I/we learned:

Tourists preparing to enjoy a river trip, also enjoy learning about the river.....

What I/we might change:

Possibly add lighting as well.

My/our favorite part of this project was:

Having our guests ask questions about the River enviornment as they exit the shuttle.

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

As with most urban nature areas, many do not know they exist, and are almost always incredibly excited to learn that it even exists inside our city limits.....
