Improved Habitat For Wildlife, Improved Education For Scouts

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

Your support enabled Wildlife Forever to provide an improved outdoor classroom for 5,000 Boy Scouts. Many Scouts annually attend summer camp at the Boy Scouts of America Boxwell Reservation near Nashville, Tennessee. Several projects were accomplished with this $20,000 Wildlife Forever grant. Enhanced forest management improved the Scouts’ visits as well as the living conditions for deer, wild turkeys and other wildlife species. Bluebird and American kestrel boxes were erected. On the fishing side, two land-locked bodies of water were stocked and fishing access was improved. Trails on the reservation and erosion areas also received additional attention. One trail that benefited from the needed repairs now allows handicapped visitors to access numerous programs at the facility. Lastly, several wildlife food plots were planted.
