Scout Service Projects

and Red Days

Local Boy & Girl Scout Projects

Local Scouts play an important role in maintaining our park – from volunteering for special community days, to coordinating service projects, and more. We are currently working on designing and implementing a badge program – stay tuned for updates. Local troops are welcome to volunteer with the Watershed – and, partner with us for Eagle and Gold Scout Projects. We will be creating an application form – for now, applicants should fill out a project interest form and email with a one page statement of purpose – introducing themselves, their project of choice, a plan of action, and any other relevant information.
