Ethan’s project is benefitting hikers, runners and bikers in Washington Crossing National State Park. He built bridges that now allow people and animals to cross a very wet and muddy section of the nature trails with ease. He had to measure the area, fund-raise for money and supplies, cut wood and put the cut pieces together to create foot bridges. They turned out great and many people have reached out to say how helpful the bridges have been. Ethan had a lot of help from Troop 153 and family members.
