A five-person Student Conservation Association (SCA) crew recently constructed some new amenities on the Tooley Pond Conservation Easement in the Town of Clare in Saint Lawrence County.

The team built a primitive campsite on the Allen Pond Trail, complete with a new short trail to the campsite, an earthen tent pad, a rock ring fireplace, and a trail to a box privy site near the campsite. The project took just two and a half days to complete.

When asked about the project, SCA crewmember Emily Brown said that it “feels good to work on a project that will provide lasting memories to those who use it.” The campsite was built to last and will provide recreational opportunities on the property for years to come.
