Policies Governing Eagle Scout Award Projects at DNC
- Scout will contact the Executive Director to present his project idea for acceptance, feasibility and feedback. The Nature Center expects the scout to offer an idea which will improve the grounds or programs at the Center.
- Scout will commit to a start date to begin the project. If start date is not honored, the project will be available for another scout to pursue.
- Scout will present a draft proposal to the Director for approval, before taking it through the scout approval process. This can be a rough e-mail description of the work scope and proposed timeline. Please note, the more thorough and professional the proposal, the better chance of acceptance.
- Scout will schedule any needed appointments with the Director during normal business hours (Monday – Friday, 9 – 5). Email is the best communication method between visits. Once approved, work on the project may take place after hours or on weekends.
- Scout will provide “before & after” photos to the nature center.
- The scout is responsible for obtaining all materials for the project.
- Nature center staff must review any educational materials to be permanently installed, before the scout produces the materials.
