Dedication ceremony for new boardwalk in Norfolk

The newly constructed boardwalk at Norfolk’s Bristol Blake State Reservation, adjacent to the Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, is scheduled to open Saturday, Aug. 26, with a dedication ceremony to celebrate the occasion. State conservation and recreation officials determined the previous boardwalk was unsafe and removed it, replacing it with one better designed to withstand winter weather while still providing panoramic views to visitors. The work began in March, temporarily closing off a portion of the Main Loop Trail to visitors. For more information on the scheduled celebration, visit the Stony Brook sanctuary’s page on Facebook, or on the Mass Audubon website at www.massaudubon.org/stonybrook .
