Henry of Jackson Township Troop 204 Boy Scouts completely
refurbished the Bio-Diversity area at Leidy Park as an Eagle Scout
Project and obtaining the Eagle Scout rank. The
Bio-Diversity area was originally put in in 2007 but needed some
finishing touches. Several of the original trees died and
weeds started to overtake the area. This project included
the replacement of the dead trees, weeding and maintenance,
installation of landscape fabric and a walking trail with mulch
and putting in a rest area where people can sit down and take a
rest and enjoy the natural habitat. In addition, bird houses
have been installed along with other enhancements to beautify the
Trees ready to go!
