The Trail Newsletter

The Trail is a student-run monthly newsletter, created in 2008 to provide the Rutgers community with current environmental news, faculty highlights, and eco-friendly ideas. Our mission is to create an opportunity through which young people can hone their written voice by developing a better understanding of outstanding or historical environmental issues and topics through research and experience Through the course of this endeavor it is our hope to foster our staff's growth as writers, and also as environmentalists, with that enthusiasm also being translated to our readers.

From the editors....

We’re all hoping everyone had a nice break from school on the couple snow days we had! However, let’s hope for warmer weather very, very soon. Enjoy this next issue of The Trail! We’re covering polar bears, tigers, fashion, and more! Thank you to the best advisors at Rutgers, George Clark and Kristen Goodrich.
