The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History collaborated with Boy Scout Troop 1222 and the City of Bryan to officially unveil a newly created Carter Creek Nature Trail at the Brazos Center Park on December 9, 2009, at a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Harvey Stewart III, Eagle Scout Candidate formally unveiled the new trail created as his Eagle Scout Project.

The creation of this new trail allows the Museum to expand its outdoor education offerings. “We are proud of the beautiful trail and botanical markers that Harvey has produced,” notes Dr. Cowman, executive director of the Museum. “This project has been the result of hours of careful planning and labor by Harvey and the City of Bryan. And this is just the beginning. We hope to encourage other Eagle Scout Candidates to continue to add to the trail and to create new interpretative materials to enhance it.”
