100+ Eagle Scout Projects in the Parks
I’ve been the project coach for over 100 Eagle Scout projects over the years that have helped to improve nature access and parkland for both human and wildlife use.
Projects have included three-bin compost systems, garden work benches, cold frames, recycled plumber garden benches, Adirondack chairs, trail-head kiosks, canoe & kayak river access trails, bird feeding area display, small bridges, platforms for wet area crossings, routed trail signage, a recycled bottle green house, pollinator homes, bat boxes, blue bird houses, screech owl/wood duck houses, picnic tables, a river seating area and more.
Below are some project pictures that hopefully give you ideas for your own places and spaces. Many also qualify for the BSA Distinguished Conservation Service Award!
