Come Hang Out!
In order to become an Eagle Scout, a Scout has to complete a service project that benefits the community. It should demonstrate the Scout’s leadership abilities and support an institution, such as a church, school or other community organization, that isn’t affiliated with Scouts BSA.
For the past two weeks, Tyler Scroggins has been developing and implementing his Eagle Scout service project at Whiterock Conservancy. Together with his friends, family, volunteers and Whiterock staff, he built a hammock park at the Star Field Campground.
The hammock park consists of several posts on which guests can string up their own hammocks. This solves the common issue of finding trees that are the proper distance apart and also protects trees from overuse and rubbing.
Next time you visit Whiterock, be sure to bring your hammock and hang out!
