Take A Seat – Boy Scout Builds New Outdoor Classroom

Have you seen some changes on our grounds lately? Local Boy Scout Nick Dunson installed a series of benches to create a classroom near the ruined farmhouse on the property as part of his Eagle Scout certification.

He said he was familiar with CNC since he was a child, attending summer camp with Camp Kingfisher.

“I wanted to work on a project to benefit a place that I enjoyed as a child,” Dunson said. “I hope that campers and visitors will be able to use the classroom to be educated on nature and environmental science topics.”

All told, Dunson said the benches took him about 12 hours to complete, with “a lot more time spent planning.”

Be sure to check out the benches the next time you walk the wooded trails at CNC.
