Travis Stevens of Troop 34 Sevierville completed his Eagle Scout Service Project for the Boy Scouts at Ijams.
Two weeks ago, Travis and his troop cleared invasive exotic shrubs—privet, honeysuckle, mimosa: a.k.a Persian silk tree (Albizia julibrissin)—from the understory along the Will Skelton Greenway to improve forest health and aesthetics along the corridor that links the Visitor Center and Plaza to the two quarry properties.
Thank you, Travis and crew!
