LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A ribbon cutting was held Saturday to open a new trail in La Crosse.
The "Landfill trail" is located by the landfill, and is decorated with a pedestrian bridge and projects completed by three Eagle Scouts.
The Eagle Scouts created bat houses, owl houses, and even repurposed a gazebo for patrons to use.
Nick Nichols, Sustainability Coordinator for La Crosse, said the trail is a great way to connect the community with nature.
"It also gets people out in nature so that they can experience what is going on out here and hopefully become more attached and want to preserve it," Nichols said.
