Environmental planning and design major Eliot Nagele (SEBS ’15) is undertaking the restoration of a historic trail running behind the University Inn and Conference Center. Previously used for recreational and educational purposes the trail has fallen into disuse and become overgrown. Nagele asked Inn Director Deana Pagnozzi, "Would we be interested in having him work on the trail? Of course we were thrilled for him to volunteer.”
Nadele's faculty advisor Jean Marie Hartman and Dean of Academic Programs Rick Ludescher facilitated the creation and funding of an internship that has allowed Nagele to conduct research, begin cleanup, and reach out to faculty, students and staff across the university.
