Bay College West Campus is thrilled to announce the addition of a new walking path on the southeast portion of the college’s property.  This trail will take advantage of the 15 acres of property to the south of the college with the intention of promoting exercise and wellness, as well as an opportunity for outdoor learning.

Pat Bazan, Building Maintenance Manager at the West Campus shared, “We hope these trails will not only serve our students and employees, but the surrounding businesses and community.”  The goal is to connect people to a natural environment by creating a set of trails that respectfully navigate the wetland area and allow people to explore and learn.  The unique wetlands that surround the college campus offer value for a variety of birds, amphibians, and mammals.

Bay College will seek to partner with local industry, non-profits, and K-12 in an effort to maintain the trail through volunteerism and service learning.  The trail will be available for snowshoeing in December 2022 and by the end of summer 2023 the walking portion will have rock on the path, signage, bridges and boardwalks complete.
