Boy Scouts from Troop 903 recently participated in part of a multi-phase conservation service project to build foot bridges along a new trail that will run from Prince Frederick to the Chesapeake Bay Overlook.
The work is part of a Hornaday Conservation project led by Ian McClain, to benefit the American Chestnut Land Trust by constructing five bridges across streams along the trail route that traverses through some of the pristine lands preserved by ACLT within the Parkers Creek watershed, a press release states.
Boy Scout troops from throughout the Western Shore District have been invited to participate in the project by combining together to adopt a site to construct one of the bridges, according to the release. The project goal is to complete the bridges in time for the trail opening in April to celebrate Earth Day.
