Tara Conservation Area gets a new Pedestrian Bridge!

Wednesday May 27, 2020 was a big day at the Tara Conservation Area with the arrival of the Ann Street pedestrian bridge that is being funded through efforts by the Tara Rotary Club. The project represents a partnership between the Tara Rotary Club, the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority, and the Municipality of Arran-Elderslie.

Ben Rier of the Tara Rotary Club announced the arrival of the bridge on Wednesday and stated that the completion of this project is “truly a bright spot for our community in these trying times, encouraging people to get outside and exercise with distancing will have significant benefits. The Tara Rotary Club certainly appreciates the guidance and support of Grey Sauble Conservation”. Ben also noted that there are still some finishing touches needed before the bridge is ready for walkers.

Congratulations on your new pedestrian bridge, Tara!
