Greenfield Park - Tree Walk

Welcome to the Greenfield Park Tree Walk."

My name is Benjamin James. I'm 15 years old, and I've put together this tree walk as a gift to my community.  I am a member of Boy Scout Troop 274 here in Wilmington, and this is my Eagle Scout Project.

I dedicate this tree walk in memory of Charlie Daniels, a native of Wilmington.  He passed during the creation of the tree walk after volunteering to record the welcome message. 

The starting point for the tour is the bulletin board adjacent to the park’s restrooms.  On the bulletin board you will find our ‘Tree Walk Welcome Sign’ with some additional information about the tour.

If you have trouble finding any of the trees, here are all the GPS coordinates for each of the trees on the tour:
