Clearing up a pond


Brayden Ceasar chops up cat tails with a machete Wednesday morning while standing in the pond at the Stratford Ecological Center. Ceasar is part of Troop 428, based in Powell, and was helping to clear 15 foot sections of cat tails from the pond for future projects. In the other photo, Hudson Baxley, Josh Deffenbaugh and Liam Shoemaker pull on a rope connected to a weed razor they had thrown into the pond. The razor is designed to be dragged through sections of aquatic plants and cut through them. The project is being helmed by Baxley and will serve as his Eagle Scout project. The boys also stained a duck blind and inserted duck houses into areas of the pond.
