Ian reached the point in his Scouting career to complete his Eagle Project to earn the highest rank in Boy Scouting, Eagle. After much consideration, Ian chose to work with the Chesapeake Arboritum. This homestead estate not only has plant life indiginous of the area, they also have beautiful landscaping for locals to enjoy.
In addition to the lovely landscaping, there are miles of trails with bridges and areas to watch the wildlife around the arboritum. Many scouts have traveled the paths learning about the trees and plant life in Virginia.
Ian raised money and worked with a contractor who volunteered his time to design a kiosk specifically for the Arboretim. Ian also recruited people to help build the kiosk off site and a group of volunteers to install the kiosk as well as volunteers to paint!
