Marsh Platform Project

The Brillion Nature Center is in the early stages of replacing the existing boardwalk and marsh platform due to its age and deteriorating condition.  The new platform will be 20' x 30' with a new boardwalk approach at an estimated cost of $190,000 and should take 2 years to complete.  We will be salvaging what we can to improve other BNC trails.  Grants are being applied for, but are expected to only cover a portion of the total cost.  We are asking for donations from businesses and individuals to help complete this much needed project  Please consider helping us by filling out the donation form below and returning it with your donation to the Brillion Nature Center, 315 S Main Street, Brillion, WI  54110.

600 sq. ft. platform
Composite decking for durability
Platform will be 1 foot off the water for better program access.
Platform and boardwalk will be anchored to clay layer for better stability
