2013 Community Service Project, Spring Run Trail Maintenance
Skidmore Pre-College students connect with Saratoga Springs through community service. Past opportunities have included working with the Economic Opportunity Council and at the Universal Preservation Hall. This year students helped clear debris at the Spring Run Trail, under the auspices of Saratoga P.L.A.N.
In July of 2013, students raked, collected trash from the stream and pulled weeds along the trail, which is a favorite for hikers and bicyclists.
Arismel Tena, 16, who will be a high school senior in Salinas, Calif., this fall, offered positive feedback. “I like giving back to the community,” she said with a bright smile. “It is good to assist.”
