a Trail along the water at Station 6, Tyson Lagoon
Troop 176, Fremont
My project was
to create a trail along the water at North Tysons Lagoon. The trail
I was creating would make it safer for students to view the water.
It also would help prevent erosion along the waterside. My project
involved a series of steps which were removing the blackberries
within the area of the trail, cutting back trees, digging into the
soil, removing the blackberry roots, laying gravel on the trail, and
installing steps. This project was a huge task and it tested my
skills as a leader. All of my volunteers did their best in
completing their tasks and as a result we were able to complete the
cutting trees along trail
digging out the trail
This project would not have been possible without all the fantastic
people who helped me. I had Adults and Youth who came and put time
into my project. I want to thank all the adult volunteers that
