This spring, Penn Dixie was proud to host Eagle Scout candidate Jake Clancy’s trailbuilding project, which featured the development of approximately 600 feet of new trails at the site. Jake and his dad, Shawn, first approached us over the winter with an idea to improve and extend Penn Dixie’s nature trails.
Since much of our 54-acre site is relative undeveloped, we thought that this would be a great idea to increase our capacity for future nature programs — and create new, accessible ways to view and enjoy our wildlife.
Jake selected us for this honor and we are very satisfied with the final results, which included 575 feet of 6-8 foot wide new trails plus refurbishment of 250 feet of original trail. Penn Dixie thanks Jake and Shawn Clancy as well as the volunteers and community supporters who helped to make this project happen.
