A nature trail in Fresno is expanding, and soon, children will be able to go inside a mouse hole to learn just how the animals live.The East Fresno Kiwanis Club is teaming up with First Five of Fresno County to improve the hidden homes trail, located at the Coke Hallowell Center for River Studies.

And today, volunteers joined together to take on the big task. The one mile hidden homes trail is geared toward young children, and soon, it will be paved and wheelchair accessible.

Its purpose is to teach kids about nature, and the past president of the Kiwanis Club said it fits perfectly with their mission.

While visiting the hidden homes trail, kids are also able to see wildlife in their natural habitat, and also, their hidden homes.

The latest phase of the project includes the building of a mouse hole, where kids will get to experience the habitat of a field mouse.
