Improving the Sustainability and Accessibility of the La Marta Wildlife Refuge Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The La Marta Wildlife refuge is a nonprofit educational and tourist facility. There are approximately nine miles of trials at La Marta as well as several pavilions and an historical attraction. Since they have little money, maintenance is difficult to perform and most improvements are donations-based. The project team had two goals: (1) Design sustainable trails for the refuge, (2) Design a transport system to allow mobility impaired persons to cross the Gato River and enjoy the historical attraction. The trails were designed using surveying techniques along with soil erosion and runoff analyses. The car transport was designed using safety and stress analysis, material and component selection, and Pro-E solid modeling software.
