SUAMICO (NBC 26) — Northeast Wisconsin Technical College students are using their skills to help revitalize the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park, and the school says they have just constructed their largest project to date.

This year, NWTC announced that students enrolled in the Architecture & Construction programs have designed a new 44-foot-long trolley depot, the largest structure they have constructed for the NEW Zoo thus far.

NWTC students have been building projects to help renovate and modernize the NEW Zoo for years. The school says within the last several years, students have completed over nine projects for the NEW Zoo including the Mayan Restaurant storage facility, Emu shelter, and Care Cabins.

This project is part of NWTC’s Service-Learning where students can apply their skills to help the community. Each year, students dedicate their time to over 280 Service-Learning projects available across departments, NWTC says.

The new trolley depot will be open to visitors at a later date.
