ATC builds United Way Born Learning Trail for the community

Parents and children in Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood have a new trail to explore thanks to United Way and volunteers from American Transmission Co.

ATC’s asset planning and engineering team installed a Born Learning Trail at Lewis Playfield in Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood. The project provided a great opportunity for employees to give back to the community while working together and building team spirit. Team members used their talent, ingenuity and creativity to design and build the trail. They painted colorful games to compliment the engaging directions on the trail signage.

A United Way Born Learning Trail provides opportunities for parents of young children to learn and play together along a designated path in an outdoor setting. Signs guide the way through several fun activities that encourage children to interact and think about the world around them.

When ATC’s team was looking for a community volunteer project to do this summer, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County and Milwaukee Public Schools Department of Recreation and Community Services offered the perfect solution. ATC donated funding for a United Way Born Learning Trail, and Milwaukee Recreation offered an ideal location to install a trail just as our team was ready to go.

We care about our community, and we hope the United Way Born Learning Trail will provide countless opportunities for fun and learning!
