Aidan's Eagle Scout Project

Posted on Jul 11 2021 - 3:11pm

My name is Aidan and I am working on my Eagle Scout project for the Grapevine Parks and Rec department on July 17th and 18th, 8am-12pm. It consists of two workdays. On the first day we will be assembling a sign at the McPherson Slough Trailhead and placing rocks to landscape the area. In addition to myself I’ll need about 3 scouts to tear down the old one and and assemble the new one. The second day will involve placing flagstone and decomposed granite to armor trail prone to erosion and flooding. This part needs at least 5 other scouts, preferably 7 more. Each workday will start at 8am. Ideally both days will end at noon, but depending on numbers and other variables this could change, so note this with your parents. I will have my dad, an emergency physician, present to monitor us for safety and potential injury. I will also provide food and drink.

 Please bring your own gloves and goggles, I may have one extra pair here or there but I can’t guarantee it. Tools will be provided if applicable. Ideally you should be able to carry somewhat heavy objects and/or be old enough (14) to work with tools.

 If you can volunteer for either of these days, please email me at

Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Jan 21 2021 - 9:19am

We made a large number of Merit Badge counselor updates. I encourage all Scouts to click on the Merit Badge Resources link to review the current Merit Badge Counselor list in order to determine the current counselor for your area of interest.

Parents we are always looking for volunteers. We would love to add you to the list of Merit Badge Counselors if your vocation or hobby matches a Merit Badge. Our biggest needs are Camping, Hiking, Environmental Science, Orienteering, and then any Merit Badge for which we have either one or no counselors.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the Merit Badge counselor updates. (click on "read more" to see name and email FF )
