The First Week of the Summer 2012 FERP Youth Program!
Meet Our Awesome Crew for the 2012 FERP Youth Program!
Crew Supervisor: Sarah
Lead Intern: Tamara
Crew: Brian, Chevelle, Corey, Liz, and Samantha.
The first day of the 2012 FERP youth Program started off strong with trash collection, a walk, and a meeting with FERP’s Justin Elicker and Betsy Yagla. As the week progressed we made our way through after-July-4th-trash-collecting, lots of trail maintenance, playground cleaning, and a hike to the top of East Rock Park via The Giant Steps. Despite the humidity, the crew successfully cleared a overgrown and nearly hidden trail of stairs heading up the Rock. Before the vines and leaf litter covered every step and obscured the whole trail but with the crew’s hard work the stairs are now visible and easy to walk up!!
