Patriot Academy unveils signage for BPHS Nature Trail

Patriot Academy unveils signage for BPHS Nature Trail

Members of the Broadablin-Perth Jr./Sr. High School Patriot Academy recently had the opportunity to create informational signs for the BPHS nature trail. Students unveiled the signage during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, June 17 at the trailhead. In attendance were B-P Board of Education members, Superintendent of Schools Stephen Tomlinson, and other members of the B-P community. 

After the ribbon cutting, students gave a brief presentation on the signs and the process they used to create them. The project began as a Patriot Academy service project, with the intent to enhance the trail. The group worked together to weed, rake, move tree limbs, and even take down a tree to clean up the trail for the community. They also built benches to place along the trail.

The installation of the signage was the final step in the community project. The signs were designed to educate the community about the plants and animals that can be found along the trail. The group worked to make sure the signage had consistent themes, messaging, and graphics. They provided QR codes on each sign, which link to YouTube videos of songbird calls, science websites, and other educational materials.
