The City of Parkville is pleased to recognize a local Boy Scout for his hard work and dedication in helping to enhance the Parkville Nature Sanctuary through his Eagle Scout project last fall.
Prabhav Pagadala completed his Eagle Scout project by restoring a portion of the Old Kate Trail. Prabhav, other scouts, several adults and Parkville Nature Sanctuary Director Kristen Bontrager spent a total of 121 hours on the project.
Eagle Scout is the highest advancement rank in the Boy Scouts and to earn the Eagle Scout ranking, a Boy Scout must plan, develop and give leadership to a service project for any religious organization, school or community. Only three to four percent of Boy Scout members ever attain the prestigious honor.
Mayor Johnston said, “The Parkville Nature Sanctuary is a 115-acre natural area with 2.8 miles of trails that is maintained almost entirely by volunteers. With Prabhav’s help, we continue to improve the sanctuary and the trail system. His project will be appreciated for many years to come.”
