Eagle Project Ideas
Is your Scout looking for an Eagle Project? As we hear from organizations that have projects for Scouts, we’ll list them here each month.
Lar Rieu Park
Lar Rieu Park is a small community park located in Walnut Creek. The park is currently undeveloped and has many potential Eagle projects. (Trail construction, yoga pad, plant installation, etc.) Mark Clar (an Eagle Scout) is leading the effort to build some infrastructure for the park in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation Department for the City of Walnut Creek. Contact Mark Clar email@example.com

Walnut Creek C.E.R.T.
For this project, the Scout would help equip 16 of our search and rescue teams (two teams for each CERT area) with all the equipment they will need to carry with them out in the field. This is a fairly straight forward project, but it has a lot of moving parts because of the variety of medical supplies and equipment that is needed. This is not a difficult project, but the Scout who takes it on must be very detailed oriented.
Before the Scout accepts this project, Beth Smith would like to meet with him to discuss some of the specific types of equipment we need. Also, Ms. Smith has a lot of contacts who can help the Scout acquire some of those supplies. And, he might look at financing this project by asking for support from local service organizations, such as Lions, Kiwanis, Rotary, etc.
