Eagle Scout builds benches for hikers
Sean Campbell of Boy Scout Troop 2 in Antrim has earned his Eagle Scout, becoming the 18th member of Troop 2 to accomplish the feat.
For his project he orchestrated the building of benches for the Bruce Edes Memorial Forest in Bennington. Four benches were built – two pre-cut planned benches and two natural benches. He stated that he chose this project because he knows many people like to hike this forest; however, they never had a place to sit. Campbell says he now believes all hikers and students who visit the forest will be able to relax while they learn and enjoy what the forest has to offer.
Campbell, 17, has been a boy scout for 6 years.
