Troop 115 is wrapping up the year with a couple very impressive Eagle Scout projects. If you haven’t already volunteered to work on one of our projects, there’s still time. Work days will be announced to the email group and at our weekly meetings.
Ben’s project is a rain garden at the School of Arts and Sciences. Three work days have been planned and the first two days have been completed. The first part of the project involved clearing brush and relocating a boxwood bushes. There was a lot of digging, planting and cutting involved.
The second work day involved moving more dirt and creating berms to direct the flow of water. A stone enclosure was broken into pieces and moved to allow an old berm to be lowered and the soil redistributed. It’s really made a dramatic change to the site. The final day will be announced after spring break for planting new greenery to soak up Tallahassee rains.
I want to extend a big thanks to all the scouts who have participated in this project so far, to Ian M and Ian S, Jake, Ishmael, Avner, Kenny, and Matthew. It’s great to see everyone support their fellow scouts.
Matthew’s crew installed new tables and benches in the Leon High School courtyard area. Scouts and adult volunteers broke into work teams to assemble each table/bench set. The ground was carefully leveled and each assembly was moved into position.
A second work day is planned to make a soil retaining structure for around a magnolia tree. Like Ben’s project, the date will be determined and announced after spring break.
Again, thanks to the scouts who showed up to help during spring break, Ian M, Ian S, Ishmael, Kenny, Avner, Robert and Ben. Thanks to our adult leaders as well for all the work you do too.
