Voorhees Natural Preserve restored thanks to a little help from friends

The beautiful views and trails at the Voorhees Natural Preserve will remain closed over the holidays, but it’s a giant step closer to opening thanks to a little help from some friends. 
Dominion Virginia Power volunteers visited the battered nature preserve on the Rappahannock River to help restore the trails and a marshland bridge that were damaged by hurricanes Irene and Sandy.  The volunteers from Dominion Virginia Power and the Student Conservation Organization have spent several hours at the Voorhees Natural Preserve on the northeast side of the Rappahannock.  They worked to restore trails and install erosion barriers.  The storms destroyed many of the preserve’s trails and made impassable a 300-foot-long bridge that spans tidal marshes.

The 729 acres 45 minutes east of Fredericksburg is home to bald eagles and many other species.  The preserve is scheduled to re-open this spring.

The Dominion Foundation, Dominion Virginia Power’s philanthropic arm, provided $2,500 for materials and supplies to complete the work.
