Scout Builds Dam to Fix Erosion Problem at Park
On Saturday, November 4, twenty-one Scout volunteers helped to make the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park more environmentally friendly. The park had a problem with the drainage ditch near the park entrance. The solution to this problem was to build dams in the ditch with chicken wire and fist sized stones called rip rap. Garrison Layne from Boy Scout Troop 165 organized this project.
