Scout Educational & Historical Projects at Angle Fly Preserve
Angle Fly Preserve has a rich history, some of which can be seen in ruins and artifacts remaining in its forests and overgrown fields. It is also an outdoor environmental classroom, where a knowledgeable eye can read the stories of the land, its past and possible future. This has intrigued many scouts, who have sought to share some of that information with the many preserve visitors.
