This is the official Bergen Boy School Troop 31 neckerchief, which C.M. Barons shared with us in response to a post the other day about the eastern massasauga rattlesnake being listed a threatened species.
Barons said his mother, Virginia, designed the neckerchief while C.M.'s father was troop leader in the late 1960s.
The design features the snake, the white ladyslipper orchid (also a rare species in the Byron-Bergen Swamp).
Boy Scouts often trade patches and neckerchiefs at jamborees and other events and Barons said the Troop 31 neckerchief is highly sought-after.
