Placing a guestbook at the bridge to document the number of visitors. (See Visitor's Comments Page)
Input with securing highway signs for the bridge.
Painting lettering on the ends of the bridge.
Getting permission and raising funds for electricity and a security system for the bridge (still in progress).
Greeting visitors and giving tours at the bridge when we are able to provide volunteers. (Some people want things pointed out while others just want to look and we respect that.)
Keeping the area mowed (We participate in the DNR Adopt-A-Site.).
Making presentations at schools and organizations.
Picking up the trash and cleaning the picnic tables daily, weather permitting. (We are not able to have trash containers at the bridge because of flooding. It is helpful and appreciated when people remove their own trash).
