Matt C Eagle Project

 My project is renovating the outdoor classrooms behind Stony Creek Elementary School in Blue Bell.

  • My eagle project will take place from 9am to 4pm on June 5th at Stony Creek Elementary school. (The rain date is June 6th)

  • The address is 1721 Yost Road, Blue Bell, PA  [MAP]  •  Park by the construction fencing and walk behind the fencing and turn left. Head straight until you get to the trail (see picture below). 

  • Scouts can sign up for up to five one-hour blocks, and there can be up to 16 Scouts during one block. If you sign up for the 9-10am slot, we will be over at the courtyard behind the school waterproofing one picnic table. After that, the rest of the project will take place at the trail. 

  • Scouts can also sign up for different crews, whose assigned tasks and other useful information can be found in the attached sign-up sheet. Last minute changes to crews will occur when necessary.

  • Because of COVID-19, all participants must supply their own tools and work gloves. People who bring extra tools must label them so helpers can identify them. The tools we need are shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows, and branch trimmers/loppers. (All staining/waterproofing items will be supplied by me). 

    Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow enough time to do the Covid questions and checks.
    Make sure you check in with the "Safety/Check-In Officer". Please do not go anywhere else until you've been checked in and cleared for work on the project.

  • Helpers must also supply their own face masks, but extras will be available.
  • Temperatures will be checked and hands must be washed upon arrival. Hands will be cleaned with sanitizer every 30 minutes, and tools will be wiped down once an hour. 

  • Lunch WILL be provided! We plan to have donuts and coffee in the morning and, of course, we'll have pizza and wings in the afternoon! Bagged snacks and water will be available throughout the day. 

Remember that helping at my project can count for service hours you might need for your next rank. Also, since it's outdoor trail work, it counts as Conservation Service hours for Life Rank.
It also helps me, helps the school, and our community (and it makes Scouting look good!).

I am hoping to see most of you there!
