Unearthing a Buried Treasure, Part II: Student’s Vision for Trail Renovation Enabled by Fellow Students

The Arbor Trail is located behind the University Inn and Conference Center on the Douglass Campus. Rutgers purchased the property in 1965. The Inn is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and the trail will have its grand re-opening on Rutgers Day 2015 on April 25, as part of the Inn’s anniversary celebration. Student volunteers will give tours of the trail and there will be giveaways of wildflower seed mix.

SEBS Student Revives Historic Trail at Rutgers University Inn

The first part of the trail has been cleared of brush and trees. Over the summer, the pond was completely cleaned and a bench for seating was installed nearby. Reviewing the progress are (l-r) Laura Lawson, Deana Pagnozzi, Rick Ludescher, Eliot Nagele, Mike Ayres, and Jason Grabosky (far right). Photo by Jean Marie Hartman.

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.
