Quinton’s project involved creating a GPS map of the trails; clearing garbage, fallen trees and branches; marking the trails; as well as building and installing a map board.
Quinton, along with other Boy Scouts and adults, put in a total of 168 hours to complete this project.
“The Mill Lake Manor area has no outdoor parks for activities such as walking, hiking, biking or enjoying nature. There are other parks located in Monroe Township, but none of them are local for the people living in the Mill Lake Manor area,” Quinton said.
“By leading others to improve the trails behind the Monroe Township Recreation Center, we will be giving the local community a place to enjoy a wooded section of our town. People in the local area will be able to walk the trails. People attending sports and other activities at the Recreation Center, as well as anyone from all over Monroe Township will be able to take advantage of the trails.”
“Everyone knows the importance of exercise, and these trails will give the people of Monroe one more place to do that.”
Quinton will be awarded his Eagle badge at an Eagle Court of Honor in January.
