RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The National Park Service is funding several projects in Virginia to provide more public access to the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
The projects are among eight from upstate New York to Virginia's Eastern Shore to receive funding. Each project involves matching funds or sweat equity by the recipients.
The Virginia funding includes $125,000 for the Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation Department. It involves the building of elevated and floating boardwalks for access to the Relic River Marsh Area on the James River.
