Boy Scouts Make Donations To TONH Parks

Supervisor Judi Bosworth, Ranger Eric Powers and Boy Scout Yianni Biniaris look at a brown bat. Binnaris donated bat boxes to Clark Botanic Garden.

The Town of North Hempstead recently accepted generous gifts to benefit the Town’s Parks from two local Boy Scouts. Yianni Binnaris from Plandome Boy Scout Troop 71 and Kevin Dans from Port Washington Boy Scout Troop 7 each donated items that will enhance the park-going experience for residents.

Yianni recently completed a bat box construction project at Clark Botanic Garden in Albertson as a part of his requirement for his Eagle Scout award. He constructed multiple bat boxes for the garden and other locations as an environmentally friendly way to control the mosquito population. He donated the remainder of the funds that he raised in order to complete his project, $2303, to Clark Botanic Garden with to support wildlife in the garden. The funds will go to projects such as the renovation of a butterfly garden and the creation of a pollinator garden.

Kevin’s work towards his Eagle Scout project included clean-up along the Hempstead Harbor Trail in Port Washington and the construction and installation of a new picnic bench for the trail. The funds left over from his project will be used specifically for the beautification and maintenance of the Hempstead Harbor Trail.

Clark Botanic Garden is located at 193 I. U. Willets Road, in Albertson.  The Hempstead Harbor Trail is begins at North Hempstead Beach Park, and the 1.25 mile long trail runs south adjacent to West Shore Road.
