NISKAYUNA — This morning at Glencliff Elementary, students celebrated the upcoming installation of a brand new map for the hiking trails at their schools, hand-painted by three high school students who volunteered for the project. The students waved trail markers that will teach hikers about the types of trees on the paths, which were created by parents and elementary students together during after-school enrichment programming. The celebration was part of a number of updates to the nature area funded by a grant from the Niskayuna Community Foundation.
