Trail from Raccoon Habitat to Outflow Pond
Henry Wang
Troop 468, Fremont

My project was aimed towards creating a trail that would be between station five and station six. This project consisted of five steps: removing non-native plants and branches, leveling the ground, setting up logs as a retaining wall, securing the logs, and adding wood chips. The logs were set up as a retaining wall for the wood chips and set a baseline for the trail. The wood chips were spread out over the trail to prevent any unwanted vegetation or plants from growing and ruining the trail. The trail was supposed to be one hundred feet by four feet, but the last part had to be cut off due to the bee hive located near station six. The trail is now roughly ninety feet in length. After lots of planning and hard work, my team successfully created a more adventurous and spooky trail for children that are enrolled in Math/Science Nucleus classes.

Removing the non-natives

First, I would like to thank Dr. Blueford for giving me this wonderful opportunity to execute my Eagle Scout project at Tule Ponds. I would also like to thank Anytime Trees for providing the logs and wood chips used for the trail. I would also like to give a special thanks to my parents, Jessie and GeeFu Wang, for all the support and motivation throughout my eagle project. Lastly, I would like to thank all of the people that came out to support and help out: Mr. Limas Lin, Mr. John Lin, Mr. Dennis Wong, Mrs. Sue Chen, Sandy Wang, Howard Lung, Joshua Wong, Wells Santo, Wesley Lin, Stanley Hwang, Jason Lin, and Lawrence Wang.
