Eagle Scout Projects
Over the years many young men working on their Eagle Scout award have chosen the
Tree-Land property as the site for their Eagle Projects.
These projects are the culmination of rank advancement in Scouting and
represent Scouting’s highest award. Only
about 2% of those who enter Boy Scouts ever attain this rank.
Eagle Projects require candidates to
identify a project, plan it, organize it, and see it through to fruition.
The Foundation has coordinated and funded many such projects,
contributing their finances, outdoor expertise, and property to Eagle
candidates. Such projects represent
both educational opportunities for young people as well as an opportunity for
them to leave a lasting benefit to the natural resources of the property.
Projects have involved tree planting,
reforestation efforts, creating hiker trails and nature trails, campsites, and
the building of a campfire assembly area. Tree-Land
is always eager and happy to cooperate with Scouts and their troops in such
projects. To discuss possible
projects, Scouts should contact Bob Martin at (301) 471-9998 or write to:
Our Philosophy - R. Martin
"If you want to touch the past... touch a stone.
If you want to touch the present... touch a tree.
If you want to touch the future... touch a child."
WITH GREAT APPRECIATION: This website was designed and created for Tree-Land Foundation by the delightful Beatriz Wallace, an intelligent, very talented and lovely woman who's a student at Amherst College, Amherst, Mass. Thank you, Bea!
