Design and Build housing structures for potbelly pigs of various sizes
We have a great need for shelter/housing structures for our herd of ~70 newly rescued potbelly pigs. We have rough examples of shelters that can be used as a starting point for your design, and would love if someone can build them shelter(s) to help keep our friends out of the cold and rain this winter. Structures can house single or multiple pigs, and can vary in size as you design.

Potbelly Pig Feeding Stations
Help us keep our herd of ~70 newly rescued potbelly pigs at a healthy weight by designing and building multiple feeding stations so that everyone can be fed (and medicated as needed) individually. We have an example of what we are looking for, but we could use a creative mind to help figure out the best way to do this and keep as much open space when not in use.

Refinish three outdoor tables and 12 chairs
The City Heights/Weingart branch of the San Diego Public Library has some heavy wooden outdoor tables and chairs that have seen better days. The tables and chairs are functional but need to be sanded and re-stained or painted. My husband is very proud of his own Eagle Scout badge and did a similar project for his local park. The work can be done at the library and we can provide the paint/stain and sand paper, perhaps other supplies as needed.

Creek Clean Up
We are hoping one of your Scouts would want to plan and execute the clean up of thousands of golf balls from our creek in Tecolote Canyon. He would accept the responsibility for planning, getting and directing volunteers and following through for the successful clean up. This project would be an original, but then could continue with another Scout later on as this is a continual issue for our canyon's environment.

Rebuild Wooden Fencing after January Floods
Our 47-unit apartment complex sustained extensive flooding during the January 22nd flooding. The property is owned by a local non-profit and a majority of the tenants are refugees who have recently moved to San Diego. The 47 units houses 26 children. Our Delta Street Apartment complex is a beautiful open space for children to play and enjoy the outdoors after school. Unfortunately, the flood knocked over our interior courtyard fencing and it will require usage of hammers, sanding equipment and other common place tools to secure the fallen slats and prevent the children from injuring themselves. We would love for the Eagle Scouts to help the Urban Coast Properties Head of Maintenance, Jesse, with fixing our fence.

Ranger Gilbert Herrera
Hi Eagle Scouts! Hope this project finds you well. We are looking to build a new breezeway/ book nook area for the community. This space was previously used for reading, meditation and overall, it was a very dear place for the community. However, it was very old and had to be demolished. It is now finally gone, and we were hoping the Eagle Scouts would take this opportunity to put their signature on this new Breezeway porch for generations to come. We can also provide some materials and labor.

Name mountains at Soledad Park in the La Jolla area of San Diego
Visitors routinely ask what mountains are seen to the East sand North of the park. The visitors referred to are asking docents at theMt Soledad Veterans Memorial at the park. I envision some sort of bench/table/post apparatus along the east fence line identifying the mountains beyond. The placement of identifiers would be on park land so San DIego Park and Rec would have to be involved. I recently was offered access to a large map that was requsitioned(?) by the Walter Munk family that contains some of the necessary data for identification of the mountains. ..

UC Seed Library
Refurbishment and decoration of an wooden card catalog to be used for a seed library. Our library is in the early stages of creating a seed library, modeled after the one at Ocean Beach Library. We have an old card catalog which, once refurbished, will house seeds from a seed company and also house seeds brought back to us by community gardeners. Patrons can come and "borrow" seeds and bring some back after the growing season. We will also have educational programs so community gardeners can learn and make the most of their backyard gardening endeavors. Funding is negotiable, and shared expenses may be supported by our Friends group. If the scout is able to provide all funding, that is the icing on top of the cake and we won't say no!

Mapping locations of trees planted in San Diego parks.
We do tree plantings in parks throughout San Diego. We would like to have these trees officially plotted in a software so that we can effectively track and locate the trees. The software, Tree Plotter, uses GPS to map the coordinates of each tree. However, the City of San Diego doesn’t currently map the plantings in Tree Plotter because they do not have the staff to do it. This would entail going to the sites and entering all the trees planted into Tree Plotter.

At the community tennis courts we are in need of a small shade structure built over the benches that sit between the tennis courts. The current tarp covering continues to get stolen. Looking for a permanent shaded structure. A few years ago a troop built at least one of the wooden benches that are still used and loved on those courts.
