Brush and briars had become a thorn in the side of Potomac Fish and Game Club in Williamsport. Dead trees and invasive species met with pavement on the club's property along Falling Waters Road. Deer would emerge from the thicket without warning, getting killed or injured, and damaging vehicles in the process. Trees and large branches would fall on power lines. And, it just didn't look very nice. When the club's board of directors decided to do something about the mess, they looked to area Boy Scouts for help.
