The Nature Trail Project

In the spring of 2013, students at Cayuga Community College undertook a study of how to improve the Nature Trail on campus. We submitted our ideas to foundations for funding. As a result we were able to obtain a $7,000 grant from the Dorr Foundation. During the fall of 2013 and spring of 2014 students planted native wetland species, helped with the removal of the invasive buckthorn trees that line the trail and planted over 30 new trees in their place.
