Scout Troop Visit: Jim Fowler and scouts from Troop 7 presented 2 potential projects. The first by Quinton Morse would be to clear the area and build a picnic table near the railroad tracks on the red trail at the end of Mott farm Road. This project was approved, motion by J. Emerson, 2nd T. Gray. The second project was less developed but the preliminary request was to build a bridge above the falls connecting the yellow and blue trails. This project does not look promising due to the height of the bridge and liability issues. A suggestion was made to build bridges over the wet areas on the green trail as an alternative.
We also discussed the progress on C. Dickisonís erosion project which was to be completed by the end of October
ACTION ITEM: T. Gray to contact C. Dickison
