Rarer than an Eagle Scout

August 31, 2018

What is rarer than an Eagle Scout? That is a question that Life Scout John Foong is answering as he works toward Scouting’s most challenging conservation award, named for William Hornaday – conversationalist and founder of the National Zoo.

Many fewer individuals have earned the Hornaday award than have completed the trail to Eagle.  It requires not only a sense of environmental responsibility but lots of commitment and similar leadership skills required to complete an Eagle Scout service project.

Local television station, Channel 4 visited John and his team as they worked to clear our invasive plants at Fairfax County’s Frying Pan Park.  Click the link below see their video.
