During the Spring and Summer of 2014, three Eagle Scout candidates are planning to complete their s

Christian M. of Devon Troop 50 is planning trail repairs in the area of White 21, just north of the Boltuch Bridge as well as storm water management measures to prevent further erosion. 

Timmy B. of King of Prussia Troop 551 will be constructing a covered kiosk at the Southwest Brower Road entrance that will be similar to the kiosk at the Southeast Brower entrance. A retaining wall along with a gravel base is also planned.

Brandon P. also of Troop 551 will work to relocate the John Mason Trail, between Green 51 and 55. It is severely eroded and difficult to traverse.

Numerous scouting organizations continue to utilize McKaig Nature Education Center for many activities. Brownies and Cub Scouts visit the park to learn about the outdoors the many plants and animals that can be seen along the trail system.
