A state agency is working to provide public access to a nature preserve in Stafford County.

The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation has asked the Virginia Marine Commission for a permit to install a boardwalk and three observation decks at Crow's Nest Natural Area Preserve.

The conservation department also is seeking permission to install a floating dock with a canoe launch along Accokeek Creek.

Mike Lott with the Division of Natural Heritage tells The Free Lance-Star that the agency hopes to open the preserve by the end of 2014.

The conservation department acquired the 2,872-acre property in 2009.

Lott says volunteers have been building and refurbishing trails on the property.
