Eagle Scout tackles Low property
Tyler Pascucci, a member of Boy Scout Troop 405, is flying like an Eagle and hopes to earn that award by finishing up a project at the Low conservation property off Hubbard Hill Road.
Tyler is working this summer on the property's trail system. He will be creating new trails and marking them so visitors can find their way around the land easier. When all is completed, he hopes he will earn his Eagle award, the highest achievement a Boy Scout can earn.
He presented his official Eagle Scout plan to Conservation Commission members back in May and is now working at the property to get the job done, hopefully by August.
