Cradle of Liberty Council Receives Grant to Save Warblers
Global president of Strand Life Sciences, Scott Storrer honed his executive leadership skills with such companies as Genomind and FirstLab. He leverages his background to oversee strategic and operational initiatives. Additionally, Scott Storrer offers his expertise to the Boy Scouts of America, where he serves as an executive committee member on the Cradle of Liberty Council.
In 2013 the Cradle of Liberty Council announced a new grant that allows the local Boy Scouts of America team to create a habitat for the golden-winged warbler. The grant, through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), offers critical funding that will keep the bird from being listed as an endangered species.
In a press release, the council stated that the three-year project includes forestry mowing, treating ferns with herbicides, and cutting pole-sized patches of trees. This work will be implemented across 100 acres of Resica Falls Scout Reservation land. With the guidance of council executive board members and a consulting forester from Woodland Management Services, Inc., the group expects warblers to visit the new habitat and utilize it as a breeding site, therefore preserving the livelihood of the species.
