10 mile hike at Borderland State Park

Some of our Scouts will be participating in a 10 mile hike at Borderland State Park in North Easton, MA as they work towards earning their hiking merit badge. The Webelos and AOL Scouts from Pack 25 will also be joining us, as many of their Scouts need to attend a Boy Scout event (they will be hiking a shorter distance). There isn’t much elevation gain at Borderland and it’s a relatively easy amble through the forest and around ponds, so all Scouts from Troop 24 are welcome to attend, even if they aren’t planning on earning the hiking merit badge.

Borderland State Park is a fantastic property, rich in scenery and history. We will explore the exterior of a mansion on-site, and learn a bit about its history, plus there are ponds, mountain biking trails, and other cool areas to explore. The Scouts working on this merit badge will be planning a route at a future troop meeting.

The hike will take approximately 4-5 hours, so please bring a lunch.

What to bring: Water bottle, lunch, snacks, rain gear, daypack

Duration: 4-5 hours


NOTE: There is a $5 parking fee. If any Scouts need transportation, contact Kim Askew.

Robert Myers Presents Eagle Project

Robert presented his Eagle Project titled “Holy Cross Church Flower Beds”. He is planning to install flower beds to the side of the church (~ 31 feet linear) that will be lined with edging stones. This will include a bump out for an existing memorial atone and plaque. Robert is planning to start the fundraising in March and start the project by the end of April.
