Fenwick-Hollowell Wetlands Trail

Absorb the Beauty of the Wetlands

On Feb. 5, 2019, College of The Albemarle (COA) reopened the Fenwick-Hollowell Wetlands Trail after renovating 750 feet of its 3,440-foot boardwalk that runs behind COA – Elizabeth City. We encourage the community to visit, take a walk and enjoy the scenery.

The COA Foundation is currently raising funds for phase II of improvements to the trail. Please help us reach our $50,000 goal by designating a gift to the “Fenwick-Hollowell Wetlands Trail”:

Boardwalk Restoration

Feb. 11, 2019: Phase I of repairs were recently completed at the entrance close to the Foreman Center. Phase I restored 750 feet of the boardwalk and was paid for through a Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA) grant, acquired by Pasquotank County, at a cost of $90,000. A CAMA grant has also been secured for Phase II to begin in the future.

In support of the ongoing efforts to restore the boardwalk, COA Foundation has set a fundraising goal of $50,000 to aid in the cost of repairs. The Foundation provides a matching cost for the CAMA grant and also pays for the grant writer. You can help us reach our $50,000 goal by designating a gift to the Fenwick-Hollowell Wetlands Trail. Thank you for giving!
