Hollins Community Helps Build New Segment of Tinker Creek Greenway Trail

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAApproximately 80 Hollins University students, faculty and staff volunteered their time and labor to help clear a new portion of the Tinker Creek Greenway trail on April 6.

The two-foot wide walking path runs three-quarters of a mile across Hollins property and ultimately will provide access to over 40 miles of trails at Carvins Cove Natural Reserve.

“Hollins has a long and distinguished tradition of community service, and we’ve worked closely with Roanoke County and interested citizens to establish this route,” said Hollins President Nancy Gray. “Helping build this greenway is a great way for our campus community to give back to the Roanoke Valley and enhance the quality of life in our region.”

Here’s a video of the day’s work.
