The Paso del Indio Trail is Laredo's oldest nature trail. Every third Saturday in October, hundreds of student and adult volunteers gather at the entrance to the trail to beautify and restore the trail for the benefit of the people that enjoy the trail and bird or hike along its paths and for the wildlife that call the trail home. We had volunteers from K. Tarver Elementary, Girl Scouts, Mary Help of Christians School, United South National Honor Society, United HS, Alexander HS, TAMIU, LCC, and the Nixon JROTC working hard and keeping spirits high.
This year, a tree was planted in honor of the late Arturo Jimenez. Mr. Jimenez was a Science teacher at Washington Middle School and a dedicated camp instructor at the Lamar Bruni Vergara Environmental Science Center. His kind spirit and enthusiasm for environmental education will be greatly missed by his students and colleagues. A very special thank you to the Jimenez Family for attending the event!!
Special thanks to the Lamar Bruni Vergara Environmental Science Center staff, Keep Laredo Beautiful, Ms. Birdie Torres and the Greens of Guadalupe for their help in organizing this project.
