ELKHART — A floating boardwalk has been installed at the Elkhart Bog Nature Preserve, 51455 C.R. 15.The trail and boardwalk are designed to be accessible to anyone and pass through restored woodland and prairie to a plastic floating boardwalk, which extends over 200 feet out into the wetland or bog.'This is a way that people can come out and appreciate this area without damaging the area, because it is a delicate area, or having to wade through deep mud,' said Rich Dunbar, Regional Ecologist for the Northeast Region of the Department of Natural Resources Division of Nature Preserves.
