1. Boy Scouts of nearby Troops have contributed many projects to McFarlane Nature Park, beginning with clearing walking trails through the transitional pine to hardwood woodland. Todd W. Avirett, Ben Sanden and Trey Greene organized scouts in this effort. Trails extend to the center of the woodland from three pedestrian entrances that were constructed by the scouts. Benches were also built within the woods.
2. The long white plank fence along the entrance drive was totally replaced as an Eagle Scout project by Ian D.Powell. This greatly enhanced the historic view of McFarlane as a place where polo ponies used to board and roam the three pastures on the property.
3. The Farmhouse fence was restored as one of the first Eagle Scout Projects by Courtland Plichta.
4. Paul Stuk and friends provided a covered pavilion that welcomes many groups who meet to picnic at the park. Next to the pavilion, a fire ring built by John Paul Remorenko, and fellow scouts, safely contains flames for the annual yule log burning attended by nearby residents.
