The Nature Station staff and a host of supporters joined together today for a ribbon cutting ceremony on the Nature Station's new trail system.  Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux calls this project volunteerism at it's highest.  Having people from all areas work together to have this property in north Lafayette and be able to preserve it for green space, as well as a learning tool for local students.  He also feels this will help attract people to the area.

"As people discover this trail and start to participate on it, now when they're going to need a bottle of water or a gatorade some of our local vendors and businesses are going to benefit from that so it's going to also enhance this area economically," says Kenneth Boudreaux, Lafayette Consolidated Government Councilman.

The new trail system is not accessible from the existing nature station trail system and environmental education facility, but officials hope to have a bridge built one day.  For now, the only way to access this new trail system is off of Shadow Bluff Drive.
