MT. OLIVE –
A handful of youngsters from Boy Scout Troop 156 were up bright and early on their day off from school on Monday (Presidents Day) to put up bluebird nesting boxes along some hiking trails in Turkey Brook Park. The boys installed more than 50 boxes that were donated to the troop for this important conservation effort.
