PHOENIX — Volunteers got up early Saturday to help plant flowers and revitalize a trail on North Mountain built specifically for Arizonans with disabilities in mind.

The trail is called the Penny Howe Trail at North Mountain Park in Phoenix. It is the only trail in the area.

The idea is that people with disabilities can enjoy the natural beauty of Arizona just like everyone else under the Arizona Sustainability Alliance.

Along with the trail, there will be a biodiverse pollinator garden for the local community to enjoy too. The volunteers removed invasive plants and replaced them with native plants.

According to their Twitter feed, the group planted 148 trees, shrubs and other plants with the help of volunteers and local sponsors.
