Oyster Bay, NY - October 11, 2017 - Wantagh Eagle Scout candidate Ethan Rockitter organized his Boy Scout Troop #323 to get up early on a recent Sunday morning to work with the North Shore Land Alliance to restore a long-inaccessible trail at Nassau County’s beautiful Roosevelt Preserve in Oyster Bay
 
The crew of a dozen boys and a few fathers spent the morning removing trash, overgrown vegetation and fallen trees along what in the past was a trail connecting the Elizabeth St. entrance to other preserves trails. Additional work included building step supports to make the path less steep and installing arrow markers to guide walkers. 
 
The trail had been inaccessible for about five years but now, thanks to the hard work and dedication of Ethan and his troop, entering the preserve from Elizabeth St. is easy again.
