The Graffiti Bridge is very happy and proud to announce its hard work and efforts to raise awareness of a mostly forgotten Pensacola wetland sanctuary have finally paid off.
Channel 3 News was at The Graffiti Bridge Boardwalk this morning covering the story. While there, they shot footage and interviewed The Graffiti Bridge about the issues currently facing the boardwalk.
While The Graffiti Bridge answered their questions, we took this opportunity to further emphasize the growing need for the city to commit the resources to maintain the boardwalks upkeep.
The Boardwalk, located on the North side of the 17th Ave. Trestle allows public access to a city built filtration pond. Over the years, this pond has become home to a wide variety of native wildlife.
I took the opportunity to visit the Boardwalk earlier this week and experienced for myself the rich diversity of wildlife that calls the filtration pond home.
I was only there for about 15 minutes, but even in that short amount of time, I got to see a turn, an otter, and two turtles. It was quite inspiring. I had never seen an otter before in the wild. And here I saw my very first one, right in my backyard, from the Graffiti Bridge Boardwalk.
We at The Graffiti Bridge feel that this sanctuary is a special place. It allows many species to live together in harmony. It provides a habitat for mammals, birds, and reptiles, to live out their natural lives.
If properly maintained, The Graffiti Bridge Boardwalk around this habitat would provide a place where wildlife enthusiasts, local artists, and families could go, hang out, and enjoy the beauty of Pensacola wildlife.
