Service-Learning Proposal Description


Briefly describe the project and the community need to be addressed.

Answer I am looking to have a creative and talented student work on creation of some trails maps for the LL Phillips park in Seymour. This park has a fairly simple trail system that is used for hiking and snowshoeing in the winter. I would like to get signage created for posting at the parking lot as well as on our county parks website. Signage will be useful in helping individuals using the trails to know where they are going, how long the trail is, and how to get back.
