As part of his Eagle Service Project, Boy Scout Kyle Cullin, had to come up with something to better the community. After some thought, Cullin decided to construct two Chimney Swift towers at Cedar Beach in Mount Sinai. 

Chimney Swift Towers are designed for bird conservationists, they attract beneficial insect-eating birds giving them a place to habitat throughout the winter. 

Councilwoman Jane Bonner and Eileen Gerle, the Town’s Environmental Educator  visited Cedar Beach to thank Cullin for his hard work. “Cedar Beach is a wonderful refuge for nature lovers to enjoy and we are blessed with a wide range of wildlife that thrives in the harbor and along the shoreline,” said Councilwoman Bonner in a statement. “The area has served as a home to the Chimney Swift for many years and I thank Kyle for doing his part by making it more welcoming for them.”

Cullin is a senior from Mount Sinai and a member of Boy Scout Troop 204 in Miller Place.
