JAMES CITY COUNTY — There are new stops along the Greensprings Interpretive Trail — eleven accessible benches, all made from recycled plastics, that have been installed approximately every quarter mile along the scenic trail.

The Historic Rivers Chapter of Virginia Master Naturalists worked with the Patrick P. Lee Foundation to secure a grant to cover the cost of the benches, according to James City County, adding they provide a safe and accessible spot to take a rest along the route which features a 3.5-mile nature trail that loops through a landscape of beaver ponds, wetlands and forests.

The trail includes sections of wooden boardwalk as well as interpretative signs about the environment, historic events of the early colonists and American Indians and area wildlife. Over 200 species of birds have been documented on this site, which is part of the Virginia Birding Trail.

Ruth Larson, James City County (JCC) Board of Supervisors Chair, spoke about the addition at the April 9 JCC board meeting, stating the benches and sights along the trail make for a “really great day.”

The Greensprings Interpretive Trail, located at 3751 John Tyler Highway, is open daily from sunrise to sunset. For more information, visit County parks and trails.
