Scouts Help with Privet Removal

Big thanks to the Boy Scouts of America (Chickasaw Council #558) who worked hard to remove thickets of privet from our future dog park site near Rainbow Lake. Privet is a non-native invasive shrub that competes with native plant species.

“The Scouts chose to help with the restoration of Overton Park as our service project to earn service hours towards their Community Service Merit badges,” said James Moore, Field Director and Administrator for the Scout Reach program. “We look forward to working with the OPC on any future projects where our young men can have fun and learn by doing.”
