We are working on local projects and becoming more involved with the community.
We are currently working with Amberations to help develop their trails and facilities. We will be marking trails, mapping out the area, and building composting toilets.
A group of students involved in our local projects committee have been working closely with the owner of Amberations in Marietta, New York to design and implement a composting toilet for the park's visitors. Amberations is a non-profit organization with over 50 acres of land, dedicated to the support of mental health for people of all ages through interaction with the natural environment.
This past fall, construction of a composting toilet began on the property that follows ADA specifications in order to be handicap accessible. The waste from the composting toilet will be composted and used in various gardens around the property. The outside structure is complete, and students will resume work next semester to finish the composting aspects of the structure and ensure all specifications are met. We would specifically like to thank Tony Russo for his help and guidance during the construction thus far.
