CREW Marsh Shelter Construction Underway

After eight months of planning and permitting, we are delighted to announce that construction has begun on a new shelter at the CREW Marsh Trails. For many years, the CREW Trust has wanted a shelter at the trails to provide shade from the hot sun and cover from the rains, especially for our school groups who attend field trips.

Through a generous donation from CREW Trust member Ed Jacobitti, a beautiful 20′ x 40′ shelter – soon to be known as “Suzanne’s Pavilion” – is now becoming reality. Terry Skates of Terry Skates Construction navigated the permitting process for us and now has boots on the ground with construction started this week. The CREW land management staff from the South Florida Water Management District did all the site preparation work, so once again CREW is demonstrating the power of its partnerships.

Next time you hike the CREW Marsh Trails, take a stroll along the Oak Hammock Trail and sneak a peak at the new shelter. And let us know what you think…
