Policies Governing Eagle Scout Award Projects at DNC
- Scout will contact the Executive Director to present his/her 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.
