January 2014: Digging and laying infrastructure around "Lilliput" in the Rocks, Soils and Plants station
February 2014 - the Observation Pond is starting to take shape + works on the Path + more digging in the area of Rocks, Soils and Plants station (including the restroom block there).

March 2014: The discovery path is starting to take shape! These are the concrete 'foundations'.
Concreting of the path through the water and rocks and soils stations is now complete (right). The observation pond is coming on! The slats will support the wooden deck. And below, the restrooms are taking shape.
Huge strides forward! The discovery trail is being coated with a final layer of ochre-colored plaster (the "Yellow Brick Road"?) and the observation pool in the water section is ready, bar observation accessories and plants. A new toilet block has been built for the water section area.
