Windchill temperatures were sub-zero on a cloudless Saturday morning, February 11.  Braving the cold, Conservancy volunteers Ben Rowley, Tom Schultz, and Peter Vandervelde installed a new sign at Spaulding's Bridge.  The site is two miles east of the City of Green Lake off Spaulding Hill Road.  The bridge spans Silver Creek, Green Lake's main tributary. 

With input from Conservancy board members Tom and Peter, artist Ben Rowley designed and constructed a sign that reads "Spaulding's Bridge Landing."  The sign is a capstone for the property that was donated by Heidi and Martin Lindsay, followed by an Eagle Scout project organized by Scout Jason Fischer that involved installation of a small pier and landing platform for canoes and kayaks.  Spaulding's Bridge Landing is for public use and is part of the Green Lake Conservancy's Silver Creek Water Trail.
