Teaming Up With Scouts For Wildlife Forever

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

Wildlife Forever, the Middle Tennessee Council of the Boy Scouts of America, and national recording artist Louise Mandrell joined forces to improve wildlife areas in central Tennessee. Support from Wildlife Forever and money raised by the Louise Mandrell Celebrity Shoots helped the scouts work in the wilderness area around Camps Stahlman and Parnell. The scouts erected a wildlife observation structure where they can hide from the animals and not be seen. The area around the observation point is turned up annually by the scouts and replanted with clover, flowers, and different food plots to attract wildlife. Wild turkey, quail, and deer can be seen from the new structure. The scouts also participated in cleaning up the ponds in the area and improving the fishing and waterfowl habitat on Catfish Pond, a 2-acre enclosed pond. On nearby Akers Lake, the scouts installed a new fishing pier. In addition, the scouts continued to mount wood-duck boxes and construct corn feeders.
