Graham Melville earned his Eagle Scout badge on May 4. Melville’s Eagle Project involved tackling a muddy part of the Appalachian Trail between Stage and Pomfret Roads.
Melville, working with Marie Hanson from the National Park Service and Dave Hardy of the Green Mtn. Club, assembled a large team of workers to install a dozen puncheons to keep hikers above the ground.
