Stumped for something to do? Check out this garden in West Seneca

An amphitheater, play area, trails and boardwalks all grace the Burchfield Nature and Art Center in West Seneca.

Now there's something new, courtesy of Girl Scouts from Troop 31024: a "tree stump" garden.

Tucked away in a shady spot near the woodlands, the garden is a place for children to use their imaginations as they move across the stumps.

The scouts came up with the idea about a year ago. They researched and planned over the winter and presented their idea to the center in April. Then they went into the park and cleared the area, installed the landscape timbers and arranged the stumps.

Parents and grandparents were there to assist as needed. The project earned the girls a Bronze Award, the highest award a Junior Scout, which includes fourth and fifth graders, can achieve.
