Scout Shout-Out

Great Hollow

Great Hollow has once again been the recipient of some fantastic Scout service projects. We want to extend a huge thank you to Daniel Seller of Scout Troop 137 of New Fairfield and Logan Kocot of Scout Troop 9 of Danbury for their beautiful improvements to our pollinator garden. For his Life Project, Daniel installed a stone path leading to the garden and for his Eagle Project, Logan installed a small pond complete with a solar-powered fountain to give our butterflies, bees, and other pollinators an additional helping hand. Logan also weeded the garden, spread fresh mulch, and planted some additional milkweed for monarch butterflies. The garden is in full bloom now and looking great, so be sure to take a stroll through it the next time you visit Great Hollow. It is located across from the Merritt House, near the start of the Red Trail. We also thank Sam Riggs of Troop 137 of New Fairfield who, for his Life Project, built raised beds along the south side of the Merritt House and planted them with various pollinator-friendly native plants to provide even more habitat for pollinators in need. Great work by all!
