How to Design Your Own Volunteer Niche

There are times when volunteer citizens have a special project that they would like to work on at Chester Woods.  

An example could include. . .

A group of students that have a special natural project that would be beneficial to the park.

A scout group or individual in scouting that desires to fulfill a requirement such as an Eagle Scout project.  

Chester Woods has been the recipient of many Eagle Scout projects that have enhanced the park.

FOCW is currently in the process of developing a trail link that will connect the legacy trail to the trails that lead to the west side of the park. Some one may want to add a special feature to this area.

​​All of the above examples are subject to approval from the Chester Woods Park Staff.

This bridge was an eagle scout project in our playscape.
