Construction has begun on the Greer Island Trail Improvements project thanks to a $200,000 Texas Parks and Wildlife Recreational Trails Grant, $150,000 donation from the Friends, and environmental and engineering support from Weaver Consultants Group. The project will expand and improve the heavily used parking lot at the Greer Island trailhead, install new restroom facilities that are lacking at that end of the Refuge, and stabilize portions of the banks along the trail that have experienced significant erosion. The project is expected to be complete by the beginning of summer 2020. In addition, construction is continuing on the new Lotus Marsh Amphitheater. Stay tuned for more updates!
