Twelve high school seniors and various volunteers will be spending Saturday, May 14, digging trenches.
The students are members of the Hood River County Chamber of Commerce’s Leaders for Tomorrow second year program and after a year of planning will be completing the Service Learning portion of the program.
The students will install a section of drainage on the Indian Creek Trail. Along with the drainage project the group has also developed a hiking map of the trail that will be distributed to local businesses within the next few months.
Chamber Leaders for Tomorrow is a two-year program for local high school students. The program offers students a chance to discover what it means to build a community. The first year offers a glimpse into various businesses and industries in the community.
The second year allows students to design and carry out a project that will benefit the community.
Last year’s second year class created a community garden located on Pacific Avenue.
The Indian Creek Trail Project is sponsored by SOLV’s Down By the Riverside, Hood River County Parks and Recreation, Hood River Valley High School, and Hood River County Chamber of Commerce. Volunteers are needed.
Interested individuals should contact Kristin Reese at 386-2000.
