Eagle Scout candidate, Michael Collen, completed his project at our Indian Meadow nature area. The land trust has owned the 34-acre Indian Meadow property for more than 30 years, but had not developed it for public use due to difficult access issues. The access at White Oak Dr. has a steep slope and a stream crossing just down from the road. Michael’s project has made public access from White Oak Dr. safe and inviting. In 2018, he completed a bridge crossing over the stream and in summer 2019, he completed steps leading down from the road to his bridge.
Michael’s work opened the way for the land trust to develop a 2-mile trail system at Indian Meadow and to manage it for conservation purposes. Now that the project has been completed, the area is ready for public use.
We thank you, Michael, for the great work you did.
