On Saturday, May 20, 11 Boy Scouts from Troop 93 descended upon some of Blackstrap Hill Preserve’s boggier sections to make them passable for hikers. With the help of a few parents, some elbow grease, a minibike, and a towline, sections of wood were brought into the forest on the Preserve’s Red Trail to create bog bridges, which utilize sections of elevated planking to keep hikers’ boots dry and muck-free.

Members of Boy Scout Troop 93 help build bog bridges at Blackstrap Hill Preserve.
