Letter: Swamp Walk grand opening this weekend

To the editor:

Recently I had the good fortune to visit the 10th Wonder of the World in Danvers. It was the new Swamp Walk attached to the new rail trail close to Route 97 in Wenham. It is amazing! The Swamp Walk is a wooden walkway meandering through a mucky swamp for several hundred feet.

Volunteers have spent hundreds of hours for more than two years wading through knee-waist high muck putting together a sturdy five-foot-wide walkway totally accessible for the general public to enjoy the birds, beavers, turtles, snakes and frogs frolicking in nature. Amazing!

Kudos to George Saluto for coordinating this long, exhausting project. Hats off to George’s very hard-working volunteer crew, who faithfully showed up to complete this project. More than 150 adults and children assisted in this project.

Visit the Swamp Walk grand opening this Saturday at 10 a.m. The best way to access the Swamp Walk is from the Route 97 entrance to the rail trail toward Danvers. For pictures and videos of the Swamp Walk, Google “Danvers Swamp Walk.”

Great job George and the “Swamp People!”
