Project Highlights:

The young men of Troop 46 exceeded our expectations re-landscaping the entire pond area. They not only performed all the manual labor to improve this area for Vista members, they researched and purchased green technology to power the filtration system. To ensure a complete ecosystem, they also researched, purchased, planted of a variety aquatic plants.


Additionally they planted a wide variety of fruiting trees and plants provided by Hillsborough County.
