Personal Narrative: Six Years Of Boy Scouts

479 Words2 Pages
This morning I wake up at 6 A.M., before my alarm goes off. Today is the day I put all my hours of preparation into effect. Months of planning and six years of Boy Scouts have all been leading up this. It is the first day of work on my eagle project. This is my second attempt at stopping erosion on the bank of the Raritan River. My first try, seeding the riverbank with willow wattles, was washed away during a heavy storm. Working again with the park system, I’ve drawn up plans for a riparian buffer, a sturdier solution. I arrive at the project site early and prepare the planting area. A local nursery will deliver saplings and shrubs mid-morning. The trees arrive, followed shortly by other scouts from my troop and the work goes smoothly.
