At a recent board meeting the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation decided to raise funds for a new viewing and fishing platform along the spring branch at Bennett Spring State Park. This was in response to a request from MDC director Bob Ziehmer to help make this project a reality.
As soon as the board decided to take on the project, board member Steve Bradford kicked the campaign into gear by donating $5,000 on behalf of Pyramid Home Health Services. Since then many other board members and other interested people have made donations toward the $45,000 project. MCHF plans to raise this amount by November 10th. As of September 1st about half of the funding had been secure.
