Scout John David Fincannon, with the help of other local scouts and scout leaders, completed his Eagle Scout project last weekend at Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve in western Grady County. 
At least a dozen scouts met at the Preserve on Saturday morning, Jan. 5, 2019, and built a kiosk, piece by piece. It will be a great asset for the Preserve, according to officials, as it provides information and maps about trout lilies and the property for those who visit.
The 2019 bloom season is expected in late January or early February. Additional information will be provided on the Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve Facebook page.
“It is a great thing to witness an energetic group of young people completing a project that benefits the community. This is the second scout project provided for Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve. Last year, Scout Tyler Akridge completed the entry sign on Wolf Creek Road,” said Margaret Tyson, a Wolf Creek advocate and volunteer.
“Volunteers at Wolf Creek appreciate the local Boy Scout troop 383 as their work benefits the Preserve and our local community. Thank you, John David, scouts and leaders,” she added.
