The City of Parkville recognized a local Boy Scout for his hard work in helping to enhance the Parkville Nature Sanctuary through his Eagle Scout project. Avery Doggett from Boy Scout Troop 314 was presented with a certificate of recognition from Nature Sanctuary Director Joe Ryan and Nature Sanctuary liaison Marc Sportsman at the Board of Aldermen meeting on October 15th.
Avery completed his Eagle Scout project on August 31, 2019. He and his crew hauled and spread gravel on a portion of the White Tail Trail. The former dirt path now offers cleaner travel for nature sanctuary visitors in wet weather.
Parkville Nature Sanctuary Director Joe Ryan said, “The Parkville Nature Sanctuary is grateful for the work Avery did to improve the White Tail Trail at the Parkville Nature Sanctuary. Our staff and the hikers appreciate his efforts.”
Mayor Johnston said, “The Parkville Nature Sanctuary is a 115-acre natural area with 2.8 miles of trails that is maintained almost entirely by volunteers. We thank Avery for his work in helping improve our community.”
