HURLEY STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN TRAIL DESIGN CHARRETTE

HURLEY SCHOOL STUDENTS AID DESIGN OF FUTURE TRAILHEAD FEATURES

A group of Hurley students joined forces with area motorized and non-motorized advocates, Coleman Engineering representatives and the UW-Extension Community Vitality and Placemaking Team in October to sketch out a design of a trailhead in Hurley, which will connect to the Iron Belle Trail in Michigan. 

4-H Youth Development Educator in Iron County, Neil Klemme has focused his programming over the past 4.5 years  on providing opportunities for youth in the county to engage in community leadership and meaningful decision-making. Neil has been providing opportunities for youth to engage in identifying community assets and community needs and to begin to think about next steps for their community to enhance these assets and to work to address the needs that would make their community better.
