The Problem

Many students at CHS used a derogatory name for the trail that connects the parking lot to the main campus. This is the same trail that CHS Roots & Shoots had beautified by installing drip irrigation and planting native flora.

Our Plan

We are going to be installing a sign on the trail, naming it "The Coyote Trail." This will hopefully lead to a long-term behavior change, as students will pick up the new name.
