Eagle Scout Project Completed

Congratulations to Kyle Camera for completing his Eagle Scout project on the Bently-Kirman Tract Trail. He led members of Boy Scout Troop 411 in building a new 24-foot boardwalk over what can sometimes be a muddy and wet section of trail. Kyle worked closely with CVTA to plan and execute his project. Home Depot contributed most of the materials for the project. Additional boardwalk adjacent to this location will continue in the near future by the scouts in Troop 411!
