Mayor Mike Cooper, City Councilmen and several city staff members joined KCB Director Priscilla Floca, and KCB Board members and volunteers to celebrate the official opening of the Blue Swamp Creek Nature Trail at the Covington Recreation Complex on June 28, 2012. In April 2011, KCB received a $10,000 grant from the UPS Foundation to build a nature trail at the Covington Recreation Complex, located at 4001 de Porres Road (off Ronald Reagan Highway). The trail, approximately one mile long, winds through the wetlands along Blue Swamp Creek. KCB Director Priscilla Floca says the trail will serve as a recreational and an educational tool, as it incorporates many markers identifying the numerous plant species that live on the site.
