Scout Good Turn Project
Completed in 1808 for the States Dyckman family, Boscobel House is widely regarded as one of the finest examples of Federal architecture in the country. In addition to the House, this public property in Garrison NY features a 29 acre, one mile-long Woodland Trail.

In an effort to complete much needed trail work by June 1st Boscobel House and Gardens has reached out to the Westchester-Putnam Council Boy Scouts of America for help. Their Maintenance staff consists of only four paid workers and they need to complete 450 feet of Trail work.

The Woodland Trail looks out on to Constitution Marsh, the Hudson River, West Point, and has several other scenic views. The trail currently needs to have Check Dams, Steps and Banisters installed as well as leaves removed and Wood Chips put down.

As Scouts it is our job to do a Good Turn Daily. Please consider donating a few hours of your time individually, as a Troop, or even as an Eagle Scout service Project. To make arrangements to restore this beautiful Trail, please contact:

Conservation Resource Guide
Conservation is a basic part of the BSA mission. Scouting embraces Leave No Trace, requires conservation-related activities for rank advancement, and encourages conservation service projects to the community. The new Conservation Resource Guide identifies Westchester-Putnam agencies engaged in nature and conservation activities. Organized by District, the Guide is intended to enable ‘one-stop’ access for any Westchester-Putnam Scouts and Scouters seeking sites for troop conservation projects, nature-related advancements, or outdoor activities (including William Hornaday Award, Leave No Trace Award, Boy Scout Rank Advancement Nature Requirements, and Eagle Service Projects).

 


Muscoot Advancement
At every Roundtable meeting, our advancement committee will be available for Life Scouts who are going for the rank of Eagle. If your unit has any Life Scouts that have questions or are preparing an Eagle project, please feel free to come to a Roundtable and ask our District Advancement Committee for advice. Our District Advancement Chair is Bruce Markert. Also, please be aware that all Life Scouts going for the rank of Eagle must have their records checked against the Council records BEFORE YOUR BOARD OF REVIEW. You must make an appointment with Dawn Niece at our council office to check these records. This can be done by calling the Council office at (914) 773-1135 x245.

 


"Every Boy Deserves A Trained Leader"
This is the guiding principle for our District adult leader training team. There is no doubt that a trained leader is better prepared to offer the best possible programs for youth members in their unit. The Muscoot District is committed to train more leaders to bring higher quality to our Scouting program. Please review our district calendar for training dates. It you have any questions concerning training, please contact Richard Perlman at richardmontclairelectronics.com or our District Executive Dan Conniff at dconniff.

 


Roundtables and District Meetings
A roundtable is a monthly district meeting for all leaders. Muscoot's monthly district Roundtables for all leaders are held on the first Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at Somers Middle School cafeteria (on lowest level). At these Roundtables you will get the latest info about upcoming events, tips about monthly themes, share ideas with your fellow leaders, success stories. If you attend these meetings already, please share with the other leaders in your unit how valuable these meeting are.

The District Committee meets the third Tuesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at the Somers Intermediate School.

The District Commissioners meet the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at the Somers Intermediate School.
