FULTON – Students in the Heavy Equipment Repair and Operations program at the Center for Instruction, Technology and Innovation recently showcased their skills by helping a local wildlife area become more accessible.
The students worked to improve a trail section at Great Bear Recreation Area by making it more handicap and wheelchair accessible.
The students widened the trial and then armored it with packed crusher stone, which was supplied by Fulton Water Works.
Richard Drosse, coordinator of Friends of Great Bear, a group that helps preserve the area, thanked CiTi for their efforts in creating a more accessible trail for the community.
“The trail work will provide an extension to an already existing handicapped and wheelchair accessible trail, allowing for all in our community to enjoy the natural property at Great Bear,” he said. “Friends of Great Bear thanks CiTi for their help and would appreciate the assistance and help from CiTi and their students with future projects.”
