"The marsh, to him who enters it in a receptive mood, holds, besides mosquitoes and stagnation, melody, the mystery of unknown waters, and the sweetness of Nature undisturbed by man."

~ Charles William Beebe (1877-1962),
Log of the Sun, 1906 

Cub Scouts in Tiverton build Bat Boxes for Pardon Gray

The Tiverton/ Little Compton Cub Scouts, Pack 10, present their Bat Boxes to the Tiverton Land Trust, with TLT President Eric Watne.

From left to right are Alexander Monkevicz, Aiden Simas, Adam Marley, Kelly Duda, Anthony Simas, Evan Duda and Nick Duda.  Anthony Simas & Kelly Duda are Den Leaders.  Not able to make the photo was Zach Lindstrom who with his sister Aubrey Lindstrom also built a house. While Nick Duda is not yet in Scouts, he built his own houseThe Webelos 1 Den were working on an elective adventure pin called Build It, the goal of the pin is for the kids to gain knowledge of different types of tools and their uses, develop tool use skills along with practicing proper safety techniques and to learn about different types of craftsmanship.  Home Depot in Somerset, MA donated the materials to make this project happen.  Lucky bats of Pardon Gray Preserve will have beautiful new homes! Thank you again so much for helping us with this great opportunity for the kids!
