 EAGLE SCOUT PROJECTS

 

The US Forest Service and Draper City will be supervising the building of wild country non-motorized trails in the southeast part of Salt Lake County. Much of the work is being accomplished by Eagle Scout candidate projects.

The completed trails will allow access to the Lone Peak, Mount Jordan and Corner Canyon Wilderness areas for all of the public. These wild lands are home to almost all of the large animal species native to the State of Utah. The trails are highly visible and are a unique value to the public, particularly due to the beauty of the land, the wildlife who live there and the accessibility to the trails for the people of the Wasatch Front. Trail use has increased greatly every year, providing unequalled health and recreational benefits.

Trail construction offers the Eagle Scout candidate important planning and supervisory opportunities. Completing a trail project will be a personally rewarding experience for the scouts, as well as introducing them to the world of trail use.

In a meeting with a project coordinator, the program will be explained to the Scout and his adult tutor (parent or Scoutmaster). When he accepts the program outline, and assigned coordinator will instruct and guide the Scout throughout the project, assisting the Scout with the important planning and supervisory responsibilities. The coordinator will explain the importance of safety, the value of cooperation on the Project, the safe use of trail tools and the principles of sustainable trail design and construction. The BSA Eagle Project policies will also be reviewed. An information sheet will be furnished to the Scout that he can use to review with his workers at the beginning and during the project.

For any Scout who is thinking about his Eagle Scout Project, this is a great project for him to consider!

For information or to schedule an on-site meeting for the Scout and adult tutor, please call (801) 571-2125. The number is a residence telephone number for one of the scheduling supervisors. After a few rings, you will be asked to leave a voice mail. Please leave a return telephone number, name, and the time of day the Coordinator can call you back. Please give some choices of times that the Coordinator may call back.

 Red Cross Blood Drive:

There are few Eagle Scout projects that offer the potential for lifesaving service as does a blood drive. Organizing a blood drive will be both challenging and fun. It requires a dedicated individual who is willing to develop a recruitment strategy and share information with others about donating blood and blood use. It requires a leader. Please contact the American Red Cross at (801) 892-4000 if you are interested in scheduling a Blood Drive.

As part of our community collections program, Worldwide Book Drive is interested in becoming an official option for Eagle Scout Projects in Salt Lake County. We have been approached and worked with scouts before. We found it to be a challenging and rewarding experience for the boys involved. We have a fairly turn-key approach that provides materials and instructions to complete a successful book drive. The measurable results, (the number of books that get collected) offer a keen sense of accomplishment and the program itself provides the boys with a great platform for leadership development. Participating in a book drive with Worldwide Book Drive is also a great way to take part in a crucial part of improving our worldwide community through literacy.


We would also like to invite you to a personal tour of our warehouse out here in Orem, so we can show you what we do and answer any questions you might have.

Have a great day!

help is NEEDED. By now I hope you are all aware of the care package drive that we are organizing

It is a mammoth project that is, at the same time, quite simple: we are trying to get care packages for ALL of the deployed Utah National Guardsmen for Christmas (that's 700+ soldiers!).

Imagine being a soldier in Iraq and receiving a package that comes from the entire state of Utah (and beyond) and not just from your mom or wife or girlfriend. Now imagine being a soldier receiving that package and knowing that EVERY OTHER UTAH NATIONAL GUARD SOLDIER is also receiving a similar box. That box suddenly becomes so much more than a box full of stuff. It becomes an expression of gratitude. It becomes motivating, inspiring and empowering. It becomes a statement. It says, "Thank you, Soldier. Thank you and your family for all you are doing. Thank you for wearing the uniform of the United States with pride and honor. Thank you for sacrificing so much so that those of us back home have to sacrifice so little. Thank you, Soldier. And God bless you."

The March of Dimes Teddy Bear Den is in need of donations. Please consider us when planning Eagle Scout Projects and/or other service projects.

If you are not familiar with the March of Dimes Teddy Bear Den I have included information below.

The Teddy Bear Den is an incentive program that provides free baby care products to low-income pregnant women in the Salt Lake valley as incentives to practice healthy behaviors throughout their pregnancies. Teddy Bear Den clients "earn" points toward incentives, such as diapers and infant clothing, through a variety of positive, health-promoting activities: attending prenatal care appointments, participating in prenatal education classes, keeping appointments for well-baby visits, etc. The program is designed to encourage women to do the best they can to have a healthy pregnancy, and further the March of Dimes' mission of preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. The Teddy Bear Den targets the populations most likely to have inadequate health care and lack financial support. We hope to improve the birth outcomes for these women and their babies.

We depend on items donated by businesses and the community to stock the Teddy Bear Den and provide essential items to pregnant and parenting moms in need. Donated items help alleviate the significant financial burdens placed on low-income pregnant and parenting women by providing them with the baby care items they could not otherwise afford.

Plan a diaper drive if you are looking for a service project! Please reply if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Damien Powers

The Valley Center Playhouse in Lindon Utah is a registered non-profit organization in the state of Utah. It is a true community theater where all of the actors, directors, technical staff and often the playwrights work and donate their time and talents from the community for the community. They are in need of new carpets, simple repairs such as nailing down floor boards, seat cushions recovered, the outside cleaned up and de-cluttered, help with organization of costumes and props, painting, etc... There are several odd jobs as well as large projects that could be taken on. They wish to add on to the front of the building to provide more closet space and a nice entry way.

Hogle Zoo annual Predator Awareness Day Coexisting With Wild Predators event scheduled for June 2009.
Scouts needed in the event-possibly Eagle Scouts looking for projects to complete. We would like someone to set up two mock campsite areas on the zoo campgrounds as models of how to be Bear Award when camping. We would need that person to also man the site during the event and to talk to the public about good camping etiquette and handout Bear Awarde materials (which the zoo will provide).
We need to have two campsite models created to show the difference between a good, clean, "Bear Aware" campsite, and a messy, unsafe campsite.
For the "Good" campsite we would need a small tent, a canvas/plastic odor containing bag, rope (to hang the bag from a tree), fire pit (stones, wood), food locker type container (not a cooler)... (we may be able to get some of these items donated).
For the "Bad" campsite we would need a small tent, bottles (full or empty) of toiletries, deodorants, food containers etc., cooler, and a small amount of trash (wrappers, paper plates, cans).
We will provide the signage/information for the two sites.
Please feel free to contact me by e-mail or by phone! I look forward to hearing from you!

The Boys & Girls Club of Murray has an outdoor play space that is heavily used.  Unfortunately there is little shade and our members tire quickly.  Last year we were able to purchase a gazebo to provide an outdoor classroom, and respite from the summer sun.  Once we received the gazebo we learned that a foundation would need to be built prior to construction.  We are seeking a Scout to help acquire materials and build a stone foundation for a 14 x 14 gazebo.  We have the plans and details on preferred materials.  Construction should begin in spring as to have the shade ready for our summer camp.  Contact Michael Cox if interested, 801-284-4259, mcox@bgcsv.org,
