The North Campus Open Space Project received all its permit approvals in December 2016 and began construction in February 2017. Excavation and grading were completed in October 2017 and Bridge Construction and Trail building began in November 2017. The goal is to complete the primary trail construction by June 2018 and open the site to the public by October 2018 to allow for most of the trail side initial restoration work to be completed. Restoration planting began in August 2017 and will continue through 2019. Opportunities to volunteer are available for greenhouse work (Thursday mornings); Community planting days (2nd Saturday of each month) and multiple restoration-related tasks on a flexible schedule.
