Culver�s Supports Lincoln-Erdman Fitness Trail

The Lincoln-Erdman Environmental and Fitness Trail program (LEEF Trail) was recently awarded a donation of $5,000 courtesy of Sheboygan's two Culvers Restaurants, owned and operated by Ken and Jill Horkan.

The donation will be used to develop the hardwood study node on the LEEF Trail. The school has been working for two years to develop an environmental study area for their four- and five-year-old kindergarten students that can also be used by community members during non-school hours.

The LEEF Trail project vision is to develop an environmental retreat where students, teachers, and community members can learn about Wisconsin's natural environment, explore the grounds, walk the fitness trail and exercise. The hope is for students to develop a knowledge base they can take into their adulthood and become protectors of the environment while using the environment to increase their physical well-being.
