New raised walkways were installed at SVT's Brues Woods in Sudbury by Sudbury Girl Scouts Troop #77163. Ten girls installed five sections of boardwalk through a wetland trail area. The boardwalks provide firm footing for visitors and prevent trail widening over time.
This was an empowering experience for the troop. The all girl team used power tools and hand tools to settle the new walkways into place. The troop had considered this project for their Bronze Award 3 years ago, but the project was delayed due to obstacles with wetlands permitting. So, now as Senior Girl Scouts it was great to see the project completed. The girls enjoyed seeing permanent results of their work that will be appreciated by the community. Experiences like this help develop confident and capable citizens, and it was a lot of fun!
The girls that participated were: Elizabeth Dewey, Ruiyi Gao, Abby Gogan, Rachel Hausmann, Carolyn Houle, Avis Lee, Layla Mays, Julia Palmerino, Faith Richard, and Paula Weiman.
