Eagle Scout Projects
Mile Markers installed - Our first Eagle Scout Project!
In September 2007, Keegan Cole, of Troop 266 and Windham, led a team of Troop members to install mile markers along the trail. This was the first Eagle Project along the trail.
Keegan His Crew
The markers start at North Lowell Road, with the first pole at the trail start gate at .25 miles. From there markers are at .5 increments. From Roulston Rd, they work down from the Depot.
Rest Area/Granite Bench install Eagle Scout Project Complete!
In December 2007, Jake Northcutt of Troop 266 and Windham, led a team to complete the installation of 3 Granite benches at a rest area along the trail. Additional benches are available for a donation that will include an inscription.
Post and Rail Fence at the Sheep Fold
In 2007, Jon Tomer of Troop 266 designed, developed and installed two 3-section pressure treated post and rail fencing at the Sheep Fold. As well as attractive, the fencing provides safety from a 10 ft drop.
C16 Floor Refinishing
In the heat of August 2008, Cliff Reandeau of Troop 263 planned, raised funding and obtained materials to refinish the floor of the C16. With his Dad Rick on the sanding machines, and Mom Vicki keeping them hydrated with cool drinks, together they did a tremendous job bringing beauty to the old wood floors.
Bridge to Memorial Bench rest area
A sturdy and attractive bridge at a scenic seating area at a Windham Conservation wetland site was completed in January 2009 by Jared Garfield, Troop 266. In the fall of 2010, a memorial bench was installed facing one of our picturesque wetlands which is reached by crossing this bridge.
Kiosk at Windham Depot
:Located at our Depot trailhead the Kisosk project was completed by Kevin Delfosse of Troop 226 in October 2009. The information Kiosk is located at the Windham Depot buildings and welcomes users with trail information..
Rest Area benches/Bike rack at the C16
Greg Samsel of Troop 266 developed this most welcomed rest site and sitting area in front of the C16 during August 2010. The traditional park benches along with a custom built bike rack provide a comfortable, shady spot to relax along the trail.
Railing along the South side of the Windham Depot
Matching the original design of railing along the original depot boardwalk, Oliver Lui of Troop 266 constructed and installed this formidable railing along the south side of the Windham Depot Building. This design will be carried for additional phases of this effort.
