Tree-Land Foundation Inc.

Helping young people learn to grow by creating hands-on, local and international environmental education programs that benefit the earth and its inhabitants and foster an “attitude of gratitude” among participants.

 

 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:  Tree-Land Foundation, P. O. Box 535 , Myersville , MD 21773 .

 

                    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."
