Trail News:

The Superior AmeriCorps program celebrated Make a Difference Day on October 22, 2004 by giving Baraga School’s forest trail in Pelkie, Michigan an extreme clean makeover. Due to infrequent use of the trail it had become badly overgrown to the point where the difference between weeds and nature’s beauty was indistinguishable. As Superior AmeriCorps members took the time to clear the trail and spread fresh wood chips, they realized that if the trail was more informative it would be used more by the CODnnunity. The program partnered with Baraga High School’s wood shop students to make signs pointing out different types of plant species. With the help of many community volunteers the signs were painted and pictures were added, and placed on metal posts to be installed along the trail. This all took place despite a day of rainy weather! The work was enjoyable, especially knowing that we were making a difference. Even after their service project was complete a high school student continued to improve the trail by creating an interpretive booklet that gives detailed information about the species along the trail. In a day’s service a lasting difference was truly made. – Michigan.gov newsletter
