FOREST TRAIL BUILDING DAY

  Consider joining the Vanderbilt Area School staff and students as we construct a new trail within the school forest. Volunteers are needed to remove tree debris and construct the new trail. All ages are welcome but this day will entail a great deal of digging and hauling, so it may not be appropriate for all young children. On Saturday, August 19, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., we will be working on the trail. Funding is provided by the Otsego County Community Foundation and the Great Lakes Fisheries Trust. VAS is working on the trail project in conjunction with Huron Pines and Americorps of Michigan.
