Nature Trail Coordinated By Monroe High School Student
The construction of a Nature Trail on school property behind our facility was conceived of and managed by Greg Braun, a Monroe High School junior. Greg happened to read an article about ALC in which a student mentioned how much he enjoyed outdoor activities.
The story inspired Greg to approach ALC Principal Dr. Erik Solberg to see about constructing a Nature Trail as a way of demonstrating his leadership skills, a requirement in his pursuit of becoming an Eagle Scout. Within a year, Greg’s leadership skills resulted in a wheelchair accessible Nature Trail for student and community use. Many thanks to Greg, ALC Faculty Advisors: Ms. Janice Lee and Mr. Nicholas Richardella, additional ALC staff and PTO members and Greg's parents. A special thanks to ESCNJ's Mr. Lou DiMeglio and Mr. John Howard.
