East Forest PTO Partners with Abraxas to Improve Nature Trail

September 25, 2023

MARIENVILLE, Pa. – The East Forest Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) has partnered with Abraxas to improve the school’s nature trail.

The PTO purchased supplies and equipment in the spring, work began on the project in April and continued throughout the summer.

Students and staff from Abraxas, through the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, worked to clear branches and debris on the trail and made many other improvements.

That included putting in swings, building two outdoor classrooms, and creating an exercise area. They also made an art area, a place for science experiments and tree and animal identification.

To celebrate the re-opening of the trail, Abraxas helped cook lunch for East Forest students and staff, then the students all got to walk the trail and check out all the improvements.
