Many thanks to Carter Corley, his parents Shannan and Curtis, and Troop 202 for installing Baker Sanctuary’s latest Chimney Swift tower! The project was undertaken to fulfill requirements for Carter’s Eagle Scout merit badge. The tower was completed this month and is ready to welcome the Chimney Swifts when they make their appearance in central Texas. This will be the seventh swift tower installed at Baker and the fifth constructed by the Boy Scouts.
