Eagle Scout Projects

Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon is a wonderful outdoor education facility to local schools.  However developing programs and creative activities for the different elementary and secondary level requires funds and hard work.  As our funds are limited, we made an effort to open the facility for Eagle Scout Projects.  Scouts who want to achieve Eagle Scout status are required to plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project.  Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon is an ideal place for this.  Below are links to the various projects that we have sponsored already.
