Future Eagle Scout Creates Viewing Blind for Wesselman Woods
Isaiah Nisley of Troop 399 out of Sacred Heart Church on Evansville's west side saw a need at Wesselman Nature Preserve. Visitor's to the Preserve hoping to catch a glimpse of the birds and other wildlife who call the area home where unintentionally keeping themselves from seeing anything because those same animals were spooked by them being there. So with several wood planks and some ingenuity, Isaiah came up with a way those visitors could see what they came to see without the wildlife even knowing they were there.
As his Eagle Scout Project, Isaiah built a viewing blind. A large piece of wood with viewing slots cut out allowing visitors to peak through and see the birds and animals doing what they do in their natural habitat.
Wesselman Wood's shared a photo of the blind on their Facebook page Saturday morning:
Great job, Isaiah!
