BEAVERCREEK — An existing educational tree stump at Greene County Parks & Trails’ (GCP&T) Russ Nature Reserve is now protected by an A-frame shelter after an Eagle Scout project was completed by Justin Stewart of Troop 71.

A large ash tree was killed by the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) and taken down for the safety of park patrons.

The remaining stump has been treated and will be used as an educational display for park visitors and is located within the Lovely Nature PlayScape.

The three-day project was completed on the last two days of 2016 and News Year’s Day.
