North County Land Trust would like to thank Walter and Timothy Johnson of Fitchburg troop 17 for completing their Eagle Scout projects with us this spring!
Walter built two beautiful wooden benches on David’s Trail at Dwelly Farm Conservation Area and planted native winterberry bushes beside them both. David’s Trail is named after the man who generously willed the conservation area to North County Land Trust and these benches add a peaceful place to sit and enjoy nature on his trail. The winterberry plants contribute to our larger plan for Dwelly to bolster the native plant population on the property and make the area a haven for native flora and fauna. Walter said about his project, “I was given clear expectations for my project. I had fun planting bushes and making benches for the trail in Templeton.”
Timothy cut a nature loop trail at our Quarry Lane property in Fitchburg. This property abuts Busy Bees Preschool and we work closely with the instructors and students at the school to get them involved in the community garden, and now they will have a nature trail to explore! Timothy added signs to identify trees and bushes along the trail and took the students on a hike to show them the way. Timothy said about working with NCLT and completing his project, “It was great working with North County Land Trust. Emails were answered quickly and expectations were clear. Creating a trail for preschoolers to use was rewarding. It was a fun project.”
Thank you so much to Walter and Timothy for their hard work and congratulations to them both for completing their Eagle Scout projects!
