Two Eagle Scout projects

Yesterday, two Eagle Scout candidates conducted their leadership projects at the Skokie Lagoons. William P. and his team planted native plants (rattlesnake master, black-eyed Susan, nodding wild onion, mountain mint, and some oak trees) in an area near the Tower Road bike trail parking lot (not the boat launch lot) that had been previously cleared of buckthorn. Alex R. and his team built a shed at the old Willow Road maintenance yard for storage of volunteer tools and equipment.

Both these tasks took considerable planning and fundraising efforts by the individual scouts. Thanks!
