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.
