A dedication program is scheduled for Friday, August 13, at 1:30 p.m. for the newly constructed United Tribes Trail.
The approximate one mile trail is a 10 foot wide, multi-use asphalt pathway that weaves through wooded areas and near historic buildings on the United Tribes Technical College main campus.
Members of the United Tribes staff and students will use the trail as part of the college’s wellness programs, which include a walking club organized by the Strengthening Lifestyles Program of the Lewis Goodhouse Wellness Center.
The United Tribes Trail is open for public use. Access is available from the Bismarck/Burleigh County Trail System at the college main entrance on University Drive. The college plans to extend the trail as its south campus becomes more fully developed with buildings and infrastructure.
The dedication event will include a short program, ribbon cutting, entrance song, and a walk, and is open to the public. It takes place on the north side of the campus near the log cabin building that houses the college’s art museum. The art museum building will be open for visitation following the dedication.
Organizations involved in developing the United Tribes Trail are: Federal Highway Administration, North Dakota Department of Transportation, local Metropolitan Planning Organization, Burleigh County Commission, USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, Dakota Prairies Resource Conservation and Development Council, UTTC Land Grant Programs, and the campus Green Committee.
* The United Tribes Art Museum will be open for visitors following the dedication
