Ball State University (IN) News Release April 25, 2011Whenever Ball State landscape architecture major Cory McCurdy, '11, thinks about the John M. Craddock Wetland Nature Preserve, he recalls the hours working with his hands-building a boardwalk and trail in a former blighted industrial area in Muncie.
Since 2003, more than 80 landscape architecture students have worked on the project, a 27-acre multiphase construction and wetland restoration along the White River in Muncie, Indiana. Once completed, the site will serve as a recreational trail loop offshoot to the Cardinal Greenway and as an interpretive learning center for K-12 schoolchildren.
"For landscape architecture students, this has been a great way to get hands-on experience in the real world," McCurdy says. "We get out of the classrooms, go off campus, and get our hands dirty to make well designed and beautiful places. What better way to learn our craft than to design, engineer and build boardwalks, move and shape soil, and create spaces for the community to use and enjoy?"
