This group spent four days improving trails in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. The group improved over three miles of trail in the limestone pass area. HHP students prepared science instruction content for the benefit of the group from their areas of expertise as it related to the project. They spent their evenings discussing the implications of the day s activities on what they had learned in the Outdoor Adventure Leadership courses, the nutrition for sport and activity courses, and biomechanics courses. HHP students also shared their perspective on what it means to be successful in college. It was hard work, but such a great learning experience, and team building par excellence! Plans are already underway to do it again next year. Removal of plant overgrowth and re-grading from years of rain erosion. Erosion bars constructed from trees and large boulders.
