AMIA Receives Grant to Repair Boardwalk
The Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association (AMIA) has received a $5,820 grant from the California State Parks Foundation (CSPF) to support AMIA’s efforts to keep the Cache Creek Nature Trail boardwalk at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park accessible and in good repair.
“Many of our monthly Nature Walks and all of our school fieldtrips include traveling over this part of the Anderson Marsh State Historic Park trail system,” said Gae Henry, AMIA Secretary. “The Cache Creek Nature Trail and its boardwalk provide access to some of the best riparian habitats in the Park which could otherwise only be visited by water. The boardwalk is in need of repair and provides the only way for those with mobility issues to explore these fabulous habitats.”
“We appreciate everything that CSPF is doing to both assist the nonprofits that are working to prevent park closures as well as to help keep those Parks in good repair,” said AMIA President, Roberta Lyons. “The Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association is grateful for this financial support,” added AMIA Treasurer Henry Bornstein. “This grant will help us to meet our goal of keeping the park open and accessible to all members of the public.”
AMIA is a non-profit association cooperating with the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) to promote educational and interpretive activities at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park. AMIA is currently in negotiations with DPR to enter into an operating agreement that will allow Anderson Marsh State Historic Park to remain open during the state’s current budget crisis.
