Boy Scout Tested

Boy Scout Troop 414
I took Boy Scouts Troop 414 from 14th Street on a quest to identify 10 trees for tree identification merit badges. We used the latest version of my Tompkins Trees map (I’ll post it here soon). We met at 6:30 just before sunset and had to use flashlights for most of the walk. They are a great bunch of kids and I had a great time with them.

    Thank you, Mike for taking the time to share your knowledge with Troop 414! It is remarkable that so many different types of trees are in the Park and how historic they are. Your map is beautiful as well as informative… A true work of art.

      It was my pleasure, Annemarie. Getting ready for the walk gave me some impetus to finish some details that needed to be done. And seeing how the kids and adults used the map is very helpful to me.
