During the windstorm in early January, the boardwalk trail at the Shadow Lake Bog was damaged.

The trail is closed indefinitely, and cleanup will require a team of professionals due to it being a sensitive wetland.

A GoFundMe,, has been set up to help with repairs.

SHADOW hopes to reopen before planned school field trips in the spring. One Tahoma student released drone footage of the damage to the wetlands boardwalk:

As of Friday Feb. 1, $1,160 of the $15,000 goal had been raised.
