For decades, scouts have worked with the South Carolina State Park Service to earn badges, and benefit the parks they utilize most. Now, with the new Scout Carolina Program, scouts can earn a patch for their uniform while helping and assisting South Carolina State Parks.
As more Scout Carolina Projects are completed, we will feature them on our website. If you have recently completed a Scout Carolina project at a park, ask the park ranger how you can have your project featured here.
The first recipient of the Scout Carolina Patch is Drew Moore from Boy Scout Troop #5 in Columbia, SC. Drew's Eagle Scout Project consisted of taking out an old wooden fence near the historic log cabin at Sesquicentennial State Park and replacing it with a newly-constructed, cedar rail fence. He is actually the first of five eagle scouts that will eventually work on this project.
This project not only enhances the curb appeal of this area at the park, but it also serves to keep vehicles out of certain areas and helps protect our natural resources.
