BSA Troop 457 at Montgomery Botanical Center Chris Lancaster's Eagle Scout Project

Chris Lancaster from the Boy Scouts of America Troop 457, Pinecrest, Florida brought a dedicated, hard working Troop to Montgomery Botanical Center to complete his Eagle Scout Project.

Chris organized a group of over 75 volunteers to repair shutters and screens in the greenhouse, and paint the nursery potting area. In addition, other Scouts removed invasive plants and helped spread mulch for the plant collections.

The volunteers came out on Saturday in rainy 45°F weather and did a spectacular job completing the project despite the adverse conditions. MBC is very thankful to Chris for organizing the project, and to all the hardworking Scouts and their families for braving the rain and cold.

Dr. Patrick Griffith states, “These dedicated Scouts represented their Troop and the BSA very well. The thoughtful, organized project moved us very far ahead on our work; and it was fun to see everyone having a great time in the cold, damp conditions. I hope to see many more Eagle Scout Projects here at Montgomery.”
