Planting projects helping scouts soar with Eagles
The City continues to enjoy the fruit of local scouts’ labor that has benefitted our environment and Mission Viejo’s landscape.
Last month, Joseph Gourgy of Boy Scout Troop 659 and Carson Galovan of Troop 768 rallied several volunteers for similar planting efforts on Muirlands Boulevard along the landscape slope area between La Paz Road and Alicia Parkway. The scouts each planted several hundred drought-tolerant plants and 22 trees to help beautify the area.
Max Kloepfer of Troop 793 led a project with about 20 volunteers along the Oso Creek Trail planting 650 plants and eight Native Pepper trees.
Cole Merrill of Troop 795 and his band of 30 volunteers filled Mission Viejo’s soil with 850 drought-tolerant plants at Pacific Hills Park.
The planting projects put all four scouts in line for the prestigious scouting rank of Eagle.
The City appreciates the scouts’ hard work and perseverance. Scouts interested in conducting similar projects should call 949-470-3085.
