The beloved and 25-year-old Bog Meadow Brook Nature Trail reopened in November, culminated a season of hard work. Renovations included: creating a new spur trail at Meadow Brook Road, extending bog bridging to traverse wet areas, extensive raising and smoothing of trail surfaces, numerous drainage improvements, and new additions to prevent flooding caused by an active beaver population. The renovations were partially paid for by the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation’s Conservation Partnership Program, the city of Saratoga Springs, donations from the 3M Company and Stewart’s Shops, discounted materials from D.A. Collins Companies and Curtis Lumbar Co., equipment form TRAK Equipment Rental, and lots of labor and engineering from Munter Enterprises, Foothills Tree Service, and D.M. Wardell Excavation.
