On the Trail...with Forest Recreation

Last week, Bob Pinkston took his Forest Recreation lab to the 800-acre Canton Watershed to let the class get an on-the-ground view of recreational trail design and development. Students had the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with Trail Dynamics on their project to develop a walking and mountain-biking trail within the watershed property. This was definitely a "dirty-hands" lab as students moved rocks, cleared brush, and wielded hand-tools to assist on the construction of a section of trail. Chris Graves also brought his Fisheries Management class on the lab to speak about proper stream management for similar projects.
