Rugar Woods Interpretive Nature Trail is a <1mile loop in the woods behind the SUNY Plattsburgh fieldhouse. The trail meanders along a stream and provides natural history learning opportunities in the form of 23 interpretive signs, each with interactive QR codes to learn more with online supplemental materials. This nature trail is a collaboration of SUNY Plattsburgh students and faculty and was made possible by funding from a student-subsidized Green Fee granted through the Campus Committee For Environmental Responsibility and the Lake Champlain Basin Program's Champlain Valley Natural Heritage Program.
Faculty mentors: Danielle Garneau, Mary Alldred, Mark Lesser, and Michael Burgess. Rugar Woods Interpretive Nature Trail website: https://sgray008.wixsite.com/mysite. Rugar Woods Interpretive Nature Trail video (mud season):
