Peter John Murray: A Sheldrake Presence

The Girl Scouts USA are credited with the slogan: “Take only pictures, leave only footprints.” Peter Murray and his extensive work with Boy Scouts at Sheldrake left footprints that will be hard to fill.

For over ten years, the Larchmont Reservoir Conservancy was the site for meetings, projects, and learning experiences for his Scouts. Peter’s footprints came in a lot of sizes, as he shared his love for the natural world and especially the Conservancy with generations of growing youngsters. Troop 4 became a regular fixture at Sheldrake – cleaning up, walking, and doing a wide variety of projects.

Peter’s love of the Conservancy will be greatly missed by Sheldrake. He clearly had a strong faith in all manner of growing things. We were truly beneficiaries of his faith in the most important growth, from young boys to young men. His footprints remain, to be followed by more growing boys and all who care about what children can learn from the natural world.

    Does any one know the origins of the name “Sheldrake”? It’s used a lot in the Larchmont Woods area. Where did the Sheldrake River come from? Local History lesson, please!!
