Excerpt from May 24, 2008 Trailday Newsletter
New Trailblazers

Excitement about the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail is mounting, and the number of people participating in the restoration of the Trail illustrates that very clearly:

National Wildlife Week Scrub-Jay Trailday

This was a very unique event on the Trail. We had the pleasure of working with Cub Scout pack 268 and were challenged to keep up with their energy levels. Trailblazers planted 150 trees while listening to the down-home music of the Flat Mountain Band. This 4 piece group from Orlando donated their time to entertain us, and that they did. We hope that they will come back to another Trail event, soon. If you wish to contact them, their email is:   Dtuten@hotmail.com

Cubs from pack 268 enjoyed the National Wildlife Week so much that they came back to work and play on the Trail during an early evening planting. Many trees and shrubs were planted as the sun set, and everyone had a great time watering in the new plantings.

Pack 998
This special cub-scout pack spent several hours planting many scrub oaks and ground covers and then hiked the Trail where two scrub-jays stopped by to show their gratitude. The scouts were amazed that the birds came right up to them and they surely took away lasting memories of their visit. The scrub-jays will be looking for you next time.
