This Thanksgiving season we are truly grateful
to our sponsors, financial donors and the hard working
volunteers who give so much of their time and talent all
year long. Without your support the Florida Scrub-Jay and Trail
would not be able to keep moving forward as it has, bringing recognition
and restoration to Florida's only endemic bird.
Temmen: Volunteer Extraordinaire
you visit next time you will see an amazing amount of clean-up
that has been done.
Biologist, electrician, NWF Habitat
Scrub-JayTrailblazer, Laurel now lives in Colorado and
we miss her greatly.
This month she surprised us when she came back
to Florida for a couple weeks of vacation. She asked if there was
anything she could do on the Trail? Needless to say we had a list
a mile long. Over the days she was here she cleared an area near
the shade house for a tool shed that will be built soon, cleared
out the shade house and behind the greenhouse, removed and sorted
through the wood from the old barn,( yes the miniature donkeys
now have a new barn), installed a new spot light under one of the
oak trees, fixed the lights for the signs and trees at the front
entrance, and cleaned up the entire front entrance and fence line.
Wow! Laurel has an enormous amount of talent and
a heart as good as gold. Thank you for your contribution Laurel.

Scout Project Completed
Keanne Cadiente, a member with Boy
Scout Troop 86, designed and built a beautiful 45 seat amphitheater as his
The Eagle award is a performance-based achievement
that requires earning 21 merit badges in various Scout craft subjects,
and developing and completing a project that will benefit the community.
Keanne, sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints,
in Clermont, solicited the help of 45 scouts, friends
and family members to accomplish his project. The saying "nature
giveth and nature taketh away" is so true in this instance since
the 4"x14"x12' timbers were from a local barn that was destroyed
in a hurricane several years ago.
This new addition to the Trail now enables other
scout troops, organizations and groups to enjoy this latest educational
and cultural area. A must see for all!
