It’s that time of year – students are gearing up to go back to school. But before the UW-Green Bay freshmen hit the books Wednesday, Monday they decided to hit the trail as a way to serve the community outside of campus. The freshmen clearing the trails are just as diverse as the nature around them.
“When you stop and think about the campus, we’ve got students from all over the state of Wisconsin, all over the United States and some of our international students are here today helping out,” says Grant Winslow, coordinator for UW Green Bay’s Student Life office. “When you look at that you say, ‘Okay, they’re already giving back to the community of Green Bay, even though they’re not from Green Bay.’”
The Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve in Suamico was the site for 550 incoming students to connect with the outdoors and one another. More via 550 incoming UW Green Bay freshmen clean trails before fall semester commences | #wearegreenbay.com#.
