Boy Scout helps environment

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

When you plant a flower or tree in the ground, it feels like you are doing something great – not only for your yard’s appearance but also for the environment’s wellbeing.

This isn’t always the case, however. That tree or flower could require buckets of water, thus washing away any good intentions the planter had.

Therefore, Alan Dahl, a Los Alamos High School junior and member of Boy Scout Troop 422, is working on a Eagle Scout project that will not only enhance the community’s landscape but show other local gardeners how to plant wisely. Dahl is landscaping the land close to the weighing station at the Los Alamos County’s Ecostation.

The twist is that Dahl is using only recycled materials to do this project. For instance, he said he is using compost, mulch and river rock for the landscape. Additionally, a local artist is donating a statute made from recyclable materials.
