Boy Scout Programs:

WB Parks receives many requests for Eagle Scout Projects in our parks. We are happy to assist with a project’s development and execution if the project is appropriate and benefits our parks system. WB Parks welcomes and encourages project proposals where a scout has identified a need in a park (we do not have a need for benches, bridges, or boardwalks). If you need suggestions for a project we have a small list of ideas available to discuss. We encourage spending time in our parks to brainstorm a project that will make an area more valuable to Michigan wildlife. Discuss the project with your troop leaders and parent/guardian to ensure the project is appropriate and meets Eagle Scout requirements.

After these steps have been completed, fill out and submit the survey below. Once the survey is completed, a naturalist/eagle scout project manager will contact you to discuss your proposal and project plan moving forward.
