Boy Scouts Troop 391 from Garner took to the water last weekend to explore the Tar-Pamlico Water Trail by canoe. The troop reserved the Panola Farm Platform — one of Sound Rivers’ 13 camping platforms along the water trail. The platform site near Tarboro in Edgecombe County was donated by Don Anderson of Tarboro.
Wesley Boone, a postdoctoral research associate with North Carolina State University’s Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources, led the troop on the overnight trip, on a stretch of the Tar River known for its sand bars. Boone said he’ll be back, this time with a group of NCSU Forestry and Environmental Resources PhD students.
