The goals of the Black's Nook Restoration Plan included improving wildlife habitats, restoring native species communities, enhancing water quality, providing accessibility, and enhancing educational opportunities. Completed in the summer of 2011, the project successfully restored Black's Nook to an easily accessible diverse wildlife santuary.
In order to enhance the use of the pond as a natural resource study area for children, the plan included a redesigned woodland trail using porous pavement, observation platforms, and an elevated wooden path. By widening paths and improving the Concord Avenue entrance, this completed project allows for universal accessibility while also preserving the sense of wildness that makes Black's Nook unique.
