Thanks for your interest in performing your Eagle Scout or Gold Award project with Summit Metro Parks. We encourage you to visit Summit Metro Parks to generate a project idea to propose. Successful proposals identify an area of need to enhance our mission or are a creative and sustainable project that adds unique value to the organization. Please note that all projects are not necessarily a match to park needs and alternative concepts may need to be developed and proposed.
We receive more requests for projects than we can realistically place. We will do our best to explore with staff if the proposed project meets our needs, and let the scout know the determination in a timely manner. (Note, we are no longer seeking park benches, bat/bird houses and bridges as scout projects.)
For further information, please email to the manager of volunteer programs at email@example.com or call 330-865-8047.
