Our ropes course project took another big step recently! The students from the NMU Lineman program were able to use our project as an experiential learning opportunity.

The program was developed by the Lake Superior Community Partnership Foundation and is a part of Northern Michigan University’s Technical and Occupational Sciences Department.
