Eagle Scout Projects

Eagle Scouts and Environmental Board Partnership

Thirty Eagle Scout Projects have now been completed under the tutelage of the Cherry Hill Environmental Board (CHEB) over the last ten years. This is quite an accomplishment and illustrates the strong partnership between CHEB, Township departments of Recreation and Public Works, and Eagle Scout candidates.

CHEB offers Scouts who are seeking the rank of Eagle an opportunity to complete the required and substantial community service project. CHEB offered many opportunities for projects to Scouts. These projects improved the Open Space lands that CHEB seeks to manage for the environment and Cherry Hill residents. A real win-win situation.

Examples of projects completed include all of the twelve kiosks that mark and provide information at trailheads, the Old Orchard accessibility trail, raised footpaths at Barclay Farmstead trails, Bunker Hill Trails, a small bridge at Croft Farm Trails, erosion control at Downs Farm, and nature trail markers at Bortons Mill and Croft Farm Trails, and the renovation of the Carusi Arbor Trail.  

These projects are significant and add to CHEB's capability to help connect people with nature and protect open space lands. More CHEB projects are available for those Scouts seeking the rank of Eagle, as well as other Scouting awards for both Boy and Girl Scouts.

Please contact Earle Seneres, CHEB Liaison, at eseneres@chtownship.com for more information or to request a project.
