Potential Eagle Scout Service Projects

If you are from an organization within the San Diego or Imperial Counties and wish to register a potential Eagle Scout Service Project for consideration by an Eagle Scout candidate, you an do so here.

This page lists potential Eagle Scout Service Projects, submitted by local organizations. You should reach out to the listed contact person to make sure that you understand what the benefactor is expecting for the end result, and whether the project is one that you believe that you can complete before any indicated deadline. Before embarking on any of the listed projects, you should consult with your Eagle Project Counselor for appropriateness of the project. Every attempt is made to list only projects that are appropriate as Eagle Scout Service Projects, but just because a potential project is listed here should not be construed as the project being appropriate.

Rain and Sun shelter canopy
Tube frame structure, covered with canvas tarp 10' by 10' or 10' by 20' adjacent to handicapped parking to shelter disables patients awaiting transportation in the sun or in the rain. Posts will need to be very securely anchored to the pavement and as yet unknown specifications may need to be met. They already have a larger, but similar structure in another location far from parking that meets the required specs, so I see no problem there. I am 75 years old and recently put one of these things up single handedly. crew with a bit of team-work can easily do a bang-up job of one. Suitable used frames are frequently available on craigslist.org and that is how I got mine and bolted it down to protect my tools long before finding this need for one. I can do the entire job myself, but want some scouts to get their feet wet, so to speak. (by the way, in the box below, "if" is misspelled as "it")

Three Sisters Trailhead Kiosk/Signage
Three Sisters is a popular and challenging hike that begins off of Boulder Creek Road, near Julian. The US Forest Service has recently created a parking lot at the trailhead and has begun improvements on the trail. While this is a beautiful hike, it is quite dangerous for inexperienced hikers. The US Forest Service needs more opportunities to display safety information and warnings for potential hikers as well as information about the ecology, geology, and hydrology of the area. This will help to keep people safe and educate them about their local environment. The Eagle Scout will plan, fundraise for, and install a wooden outdoor information kiosk at the trailhead. Construction tasks will likely include carpentry, digging, cement pouring, hauling supplies, and more.

Our preschool is interested in starting a sensory garden for the children ages 2-4 years old to plant flowers, herbs, and vegetables in. Our goal is to provide a space to explore the various senses through the natural world. We are open to different design ideas of incorporating a small bench or different textures such as rocks.

Very proud of those Eagle Scouts and would love to have a little pride in our garden!
