Another Fantastic Eagle Scout Project – Alex DeAngelis

Hello Troop

This past weekend a large contingent of troop 648 scouts, family and friends descended upon the Rio Salado Habitat Restoration area.  Along the historic Salt River, this 600-acre park is located less then two miles from downtown Phoenix and is a lush Sonoran riparian habitat used by over 200 species of birds and other wildlife—beavers, muskrats, coyotes, jackrabbits, cottontails, and javelinas—to name a few.

Alex’s project consisted of building 100 feet of split rail fence and laying down heavy gauge chicken wire necessary to keep the beavers from entering a specific section of the habitat.  It was back breaking work but the crew, led by Alex, did a great job and provided a much needed upgrade to the area.

Alex will conclude his trail to Eagle with a few more requirements to complete over the next few weeks and we are confident he will succeed.  Congrats and a big THANKS to all who attended.
