Service Learners are focused on designing new and improved trail entrances to the Wissahickon Park. These designs reflect what they observed on several park visits about the park users. The students found that very few hikers use the lower trail in comparison to cyclists and runners during the early afternoon hours. However, the diversity of uses was evident. In addition to hikers, runners and cyclists, students discovered many fishers on sunnier days.
Interns are blogging about their daily activities and preparing for the showcase events that will be held throughout next week. They are also completing career portfolios that include resumes, samples of their work, and reflections of their strengths and skills in the workplace. Here are links to the internship team blogs:
