Eagle Scout Projects facilitate the youth-orientated leadership and responsibility of Boy Scouts. In order to earn the Eagle Scout rank, a Boy Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills. The Spoil Island Project is a great opportunity to let Boy Scouts take a leading role in the enhancement of the spoils islands while helping them meet the requirements of the Eagle Scout rank.
The enhancement of spoil islands requires several steps of progression over time, and depending on the designated use of the island (recreation, conservation or education), trails, fire pits, picnic tables, benches, and kiosks may be designed, constructed, and strategically placed on the island. However, it is important to identify the designated use and create a project that will meet those needs. Project description, planning details, and approval for the Eagle Scout Project are required before it is implemented. After the troop leader has the Eagle Scout Project reviewed, send a hard copy to the Spoil Island Coordinator.
