Nature trail being developed (May 1, 1973): Spearheaded by faculty members Denny Gathman and Dr. Donald Garren, a nature trail that surrounds the college is being planned. It begins with a plaque listing the names of people who donated resources, money, or time to the trail, which has various markers where visitors can stop to read about the different native trees and vegetation. Although never built, “a small rustic amphitheatre” was planned for the trail that faculty from all disciplines could use for their classes.
