During their training week, the Youth Employment in Parks teens learned about tools, safety, team building, and trail building. For their first project the teens worked on improving a social trail that will provide residents with year-round access to Russian Jack Springs Park, local schools, and the trail system.
The project consisted of:
• Clearing a 4’ wide trail: removing tree stumps, roots, and other vegetation
• Hauling 27 cubic tons of D1 aggregate
• Raking and compacting 350 feet of trail
