Thank to many volunteers and donors, the Wetlands Walk at Gunstock Mountain Resort in Gilford has been temporarily stabilized to reduce further tilting, the boardwalk support posts have been cleared of rot-inducing debris, other minor repairs have been completed, and the edging which helps guide the visually impaired has been fixed, primed and painted. The Wetlands Walk is a quarter-mile elevated boardwalk that surrounds a picturesque wetland at the resort. In 2017 alone volunteers donated more than 1,000 hours making these improvements. Those who made financial donations are honored with name plaques that are placed on individual boards within the Walk. These plaques are available through the Buy a Board program and may also be given as a gift. For more information on the Buy a Board program visit website belknapccd.org.
