A team explores a possible new trail at CSI

It was cold yesterday, but that didn’t stop a hardy bunch of folks from donning waders and heading into the marsh areas of the CSI campus. 


The team was looking at the possibility of creating a trail and boardwalk to access the marsh and sound.  The adventure was a success, although a couple people ended up getting wetter than planned.


In the process, the exploration party witnessed some beautiful ice features associated with exposed tree trunks and found some interesting historical remains.  Dr. Nathan Richards is interested in exploring this area more in the future.   Drs. Corbett and Walsh along with ECU students Jessica Strand, David Hawkins and other are initiating some marsh research in the area, so the walking tour provided a nice perspective.
