Boy Scout Brian Bartee, Troop 205 worked on his Eagle Project for Cypress Nature Study Center over several months. He installed 34 trees signs on Cypress Nature Study Center's trail. Each sign was built from 2" X12" treated lumber, then routered with the common and scientific name of each native tree. These tree identification signs will be utilized by students during their cross-curricular field trip. Drop by and check out these new signs. We will be glad to share our new tree ID trail.
Boy Scout, Stephen Bass from Troop 113, has been working on his Eagle Project for over a year. This project was developed from an idea Stephen received after visiting with Cypress Nature Study Center Education Director, Melissa Whittington. Stephen was very interested in constructing bat houses for the purpose of educating the public on the benefit of bats in natural areas. The project involved making a plan for construction, then finding a way to fund the project, and presenting the idea to the Cypress Nature Study Center Director and the Norwela Council for approval. After many months of planning, presenting, and preparing Stephen implemented his project at Cypress Nature Study Center. His hard work will benefit the thousands of visitors to Cypress Nature Study Center for many years. Check out Stephen’s hard work at Cypress Nature Study Center.
