University of Virginia Goes On Nature Hike


The University of Virginia CFACT chapter took to the field on Friday, October 25th, hiking along a new trail just outside the grounds of the campus. In addition to exploring this new path at Fry Spring, the Collegians promoted stewardship in planting four dogwood trees and mulching nearly one hundred yards of the trail. UVa’s CFACT chapter was glad to spend part of what was a picturesque Friday afternoon improving the trail for others to also appreciate and utilize.

Interest grew in the organization as well, according to CFACT chair Margy Eastham. Several students were joining the Collegians efforts for the first time, and left seeking to get more involved in the future.

She went on to note, “Volunteering in the greater Charlottesville area was a great first step for CFACT here at UVa, giving us an opportunity to foster a relationship with a community that truly values its rural roots.”
