Parkville Missouri

Eagle Scout Project Completed at Parkville Nature Sanctuary

The City of Parkville recognized a local Boy Scout from Troop 261 for his hard work and dedication in helping to enhance the Parkville Nature Sanctuary through his Eagle Scout project. The Scout was recognized at the Board of Aldermen meeting on November 21st.

Caleb Johnson completed his Eagle Scout project by mulching the Old Kate Trail to the waterfall, the entirety of the mulched portion of Butterfly Pass and the story time circle. In total, one-third of a mile of trails was covered with 100 cubic yards of mulch.

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 Katerndahl said, “The Parkville Nature Sanctuary is a 115-acre natural area with 2.8 miles of trails that is maintained almost entirely by volunteers. We can’t begin to thank Caleb and his group of volunteers enough and they help to continually improve the sanctuary with their hard work.”
