Camp Polk Meadow Preserve's Hindman Springs Area is about to undergo a lovely transformation! In the coming months and years, we will be giving this part of the Preserve some love and attention including: replacing the aging trail, stabilizing the historic Hindman Barn, and restoring native plant communities.

In the next few weeks you'll see crews on site working to overhaul the old, bark-chipped trail. Improvements will include:

  • Building a new trail made of crushed gravel.
  • Widening the trail to make it more accessible.
  • Re-aligning portions of the trail to protect sensitive wetland habitat and other natural features.
  • Replacing the small bridge over the springs so it is wider and more accessible.

We are looking forward to sharing all this work with you as soon as it is completed. Stay tuned!
