When the Fern Hollow Bridge collapsed, it didn’t just leave travelers injured and the East End stymied without a critical artery. It collapsed directly into Fern Hollow, into Frick Park and into the Nine Mile Run Watershed area we’ve spent 20 years stewarding.
Today, we call on our community, our partners and our friends to join us in protecting Fern Hollow. By advocating for smart demolition practices and environmentally sensitive construction, we can protect the delicate ecosystem in Fern Hollow, including the wetlands that could be affected by heavy equipment, sedimentation effects on the wildlife, potential loss of tree canopy and biodiversity.
By working together, we won’t just have a bridge for all to use safely, we’ll make Fern Hollow better than it was when a bridge landed in it. Isn’t that why we’re all here?
