Last week GTM staff and volunteers, high school students, and Citibank staff began work on a new, paved nature trail. The permeable pavers are made-up of 95 percent recycled tires and 5 percent recycled plastic. This project is part of the $613,000 “green” construction grant awarded by the National Estuarine Research Reserve System. The “sandy” trail, as it has been nicknamed, is expected to be completed in late May 2016.
