Changes to our website

We are in the process of making some changes to our site. You may have already noticed some changes to our main menu.

A significant part of the upgrade will involve the creation of new areas of content so we can provide more information about the unique ecosystem that is Soldiers Delight Natural Environment Area. Most of these areas are present but not yet complete. Other changes involve fixes to a few things that are broken and a slight reorganization of site in general.

If you find anything about the site that you think needs attention, don't be shy - tell us about it. Meanwhile, thanks for your patience.
