Duncan Watson, a Sartell Boy Scout with Troop 11, outlined his proposed Eagle Scout project to the Sartell City Council during a recent meeting.
Watson, with help from other scouts, wants to clear brush, branches and widen trails at Sauk River Regional Park, which is Sartell’s newest park, yet to be developed.
There are existing trails on that property, but they are in bad condition. Those are the trails on which the Scouts will work. The work, Watson said, can be done before this winter. The improved trails can then be used for skiing and snowshoeing.
The Scouts will walk through the park with city workers to determine exactly what work has to be done.
The council thanked Watson and the Scouts for their willingness to do such volunteer work.
