Boy Scouts in Troop 262 recently completed their Eagle Scout projects in conjunction with the Friends of Webster Trails.
The goal of each project was to create accessible outdoor spaces for public use on local trails.
At Four Mile Creek Trail Preserve, in September, Nicholas Hamby led a team of volunteers to create a new trail next to Salt Creek, on the red trail near the Guenther Bridge. The trail begins with a step down to a new boardwalk and leads to a secluded bench and table in the woods. The short scenic hike includes sugar maple trees and an excellent view of Salt Creek.
At Hickory Bark Park Trail, located behind the Webster Public Library, Truman Mortillaro led a team of volunteers in constructing a 72-foot long wheelchair accessible boardwalk, including a bump out viewing area, leading to the library’s outdoor learning space.
The Scouts thanked the Friends of Webster Trails and Patrick Fulkerson for guidance and assistance leading to the success of these projects.
