Long Description:
This project was completed by Mike Ummarino from Troop 55 in July of 2004. His troop is located in Tuckahoe, NJ, Cape May County.

The detail and design makes this well-crafted landscape a perfect addition to this county park. I especially appreciated the fieldstone-layered retaining wall which surrounds three different non-deciduous species of shrubbery. It is also wired for nighttime lighting as well. I was unaware that complex electrical work was a mandate for an Eagle Scout!

Located in Cape May County, this wildlife preserve is simply beautiful, thanks in part to the efforts made by local Eagle Scouts. When you are finished admiring this scout's handiwork, walk down the path and inside the park to be dazzled by the dozens of interpretive duck displays scattered throughout the preserve. They are colorful and informative and offer great insight into the many species of duck we see everyday. There are swinging benches, fish-laden lakes and ponds and well defined, hard-packed trails for your enjoyment. If this were a geocache, the terrain would be rated a 1. I would definitely recommend this waymark, as well as the other waymarks and geocaches for children.
