September 2001, Endicott Lake

Page 1

On September 15th, a number of the scouts made their way back to Endicott Lake to measure and water trees for the Environmental Science merit badge. The scouts on this outing included Ty F, Kyle L, Sean M, and Thomas R, with Alan M, and Dave R as adults.
This part of science involves repeated observation of a particular area to see how it handled the changing seasons. As these were reintroduced plants, we also watered the plants in the hope that they would become established enough to have a reasonable number survive. The scouts then took the data that they collected, and drew up graphs to show how each of the individual plants did, as well as how each of the plant species did.
