Scout Trail, Infrastructure & Habitat Projects at Rhinoceros Creek Reservation

Within its two parcels, Rhinoceros Creek's 115 acres boast a surprising number of habitats: streams, human-constructed and beaver ponds, wetlands, forest, and upland rocky hills. Scouts are helping to make these areas accessible while also protecting habitat by constructing trails, bridges and other infrastructure.

Matthew cleared a trail at Rhinoceros Creek (east) and built a bridge over the outlet stream from the beaver pond. The bridge offers a peaceful spot to observe turtles, birds, waterfowl and even the beaver working on the dam.
