Transformation on the Trail

Stuff We Love
Sept. 16, 2023

It’s no secret that the Boardman Lake Loop Trail in Traverse City is a popular spot for a stroll. And after a summer of busy foot and bike traffic, now’s a perfect time for a trail clean-up. Enter: The St. Clair Butterfly Foundation (SCBF), a national nonprofit dedicated to helping traumatized youth overcome adversity through expressive arts programs and providing trauma-informed training for educators. They’ve partnered up with the TC branch of Home Depot for an event on Saturday, Sept. 23, called Transformation on the Trail: Boardman Lake Clean-Up & Creative Exploration. The community is invited to participate from 10am to 2pm (starting and ending at Hull Park) with options to volunteer for the trail clean-up, participate in creative workshops, and “connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for positive change.” Learn more and RSVP at
