Cranberry Bog Maintenance 2024

On Saturday, February 3, Troop 135 Scouts worked hard and had fun helping the Conservation Commission with removing white pines and maples from the Cranberry Bog. This is part of the efforts to restore and maintain the Cranberry Bog as a wet meadow habitat.

Many trees were removed using saws and loppers, and carried to where they will be picked up by the DPW.

Scouts and parents who helped with the project, pictured L-R, are Eric Evans (Scoutmaster), Luke Gettings, Matthew Evans, Marco Rivero, Teddy Jiang, Hunter Braygreen, Mateo Rivero, Jacob Gettings, Teddy Watters, Ted Watters, and Andy Gettings. Not pictured but also a big help were Isaac Troppoli, Tyler Abrams and Clayton Abrams.

Conversation committee members provided goodies, expalined the details and recorded the participants on the way in.

Luke Gettings led the troop’s effort by sending out emails and making an announcement at a troop meeting.

This 12-year-old tree is as old as some of the scouts.

They came, “saw” and and conquered!
