Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust took delivery recently from Charlie Stock of Boy Scout Troop 54 in Woodbury of four “accessible” picnic tables.
The tables were constructed as part of his Eagle Scout project and are specifically designed to accommodate wheelchairs and be easier to maneuver for those less mobile.
Stock shared that he had chosen Flanders as the recipient of his work in honor of his late aunt who was an educator and nature lover. It is his wish that the addition of these tables at the Flanders’ main campus will make it easier for every child and adult, no matter their physical limitations, to be able to more easily enjoy engaging in programs and activities at the center.
Stock credits family and friends for making donations toward the project, Ace Hardware of Woodbury and Chapman Lumber of Watertown who extended discounts on the supplies he needed and the leaders and fellow members of his troop for helping with the construction of the tables.
Along with the tables Stock also presented Flanders with a check to help support their mission as a regional leader in land conservation and preservation and to provide environmental education for all ages.
