Eagle Scout project to create green space PDF Print E-mail

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside.”
Those words, by Anne Frank, were the inspiration behind Boy Scout Max Jones’ Eagle Scout project which must be completed by his 18th birthday in March.
“For those who need nature to come to them, I’ve begun my Eagle Scout project, a landscaped area at Golden Ours Convalescent Home in Grant,” said Jones.
The project will include a 50’ by 15’ dry creek bed with boulders and river rock, and a bubbling water feature at the south end. The bermed area will be located along the dining hall windows.            The goal is to have the area as low-maintenance as possible, with a drip irrigation system and perennial plants.
Jones has been working with Western Turf Landscaping and hopes to have the project completed by Oct. 10.     
The estimated cost of the project is $5,500, with funds generated by local groups such as the Lions Club, who donated $250 and Perkins County Health Services Foundation who donated $500.
