Two community gardens in Boulder are well on their way to producing this year’s crop after Montana Conservation Corps partnered with an elementary after-school program as part of Global Youth Service Day.
The project is part of Sussex School's 29th annual Ecothon event, which you can see the entire student body do volunteer work. They helped build a quarter mile of trail, along with Five Valleys Land Trust, the city and the Montana Conservation Corps
More Montanans enroll in AmeriCorps per capita than residents of any other state, according to the Corporation for National and Community Service.
Much has been written about the economic value of trails. Bozeman based Headwaters Economics has just posted an online library of economic studies for community leaders and planners.
