Expanding Pond in Butterfly Meadow
Quess Liu
Troop 153, Fremont

The goal of my Eagle Project was to provide a unique, educational environment for visitors to Tule Ponds by expanding and installing new artificial ponds at Tule Ponds/Tyson Lagoon. I renovated and repositioned one of the existing ponds, which originally posed a safety issue. I also installed two new ponds, laid out pebbles and flagstones for decoration, and removed surrounding vegetation.

            My project will allow visitors, especially children and students, to observe the natural ecosystem of Tule Ponds safely. Students have fallen into the pond before after slipping on loose flagstones. They will be able to see tadpoles, small fish, and tules close up.
