Bring Bricks Back to Nature
With over 40,000 bricks produced a day there were bound to be a few bad bricks. As you walk deeper into the wooded trails look closely at what appears to be hills of trees and vegetation. LOOK AGAIN - these hills are the remains of discarded brick that did not meet final inspection. Made from natural material these bricks are now returning to nature once more - helping to rebuild a forest community. (Marker Number 9.)
