Available Scout Projects

Researching a project and location for a Gold Award or an Eagle Scout Award?

Lee State Park HAS BOTH! Park Rangers have created a list of projects needed at the park.

Project #1 Basking Turtle Platforms 

In Progress

These are small platforms made of wood and PVC. The platforms will need to be anchored to the pond bottom. Our turtles will crawl out on these platforms to sunbathe and it creates an easy way for park staff and volunteers to complete turtle surveys.  The platforms will help the park staff learn more about the size and different species of turtles that use our waterbodies.

Project #2 Pollinator Garden at the Environmental Education Center

There is a big sunny spot right by the park’s Environmental Education Center that would be perfect as an educational pollinator garden habitat—a place for pollinators and a place to teach people how to create their own pollinator habitat at home.

Project #3 Trail Organization 

A PORTION IS IN PROGRESS  For more information about remaining project portions, contact the Park Interpreter, Laura Kirk (803) 428-4988 or lkirk@scprt.com

This project covers the inventory, renaming and remarking of all the park’s hiking trails, equestrian trails and multi-use trails. Lee has a great problem—a lot of trails! There are so many trails that we have run out of colors for designating different trails from one another. Our park needs to move to a letter/number system to accommodate the varied trails we have.  Also, by using a letter/number system, colorblind individuals will be able to navigate the trails much easier.

Project #4 ADA Picnic Tables

In Progress

This project is the construction of wheelchair accessible picnic tables.  These tables are a basic design with the plank table top extended a couple of feet on one side to create wheelchair accessible seating.

Project #5 Accessible and Inclusive Playground Equipment

This project involves researching, fundraising, purchasing and installation of one or more pieces of accessible and inclusive playground equipment to be added to our current playground.  Examples of what Park Rangers think may work at Lee State Park include an inclusive spinner, a cocoon, or swings.


Project #6 Camping Platforms

The Civilian Conservation Corps built three fishing cabins on Mulberry Island back in the 1930s at Lee State Park. The cabins were dismantled in the 1960s, we believe due to termite damage of the untreated wood.  We would like to bring back overnight accommodations to Mulberry Island.   Inspired by camping platforms along the Roanoke River in North Carolina, 2-3 basic platforms built on dry land will meet the needs of drive in campers and boat in campers.  Park Manager Dan Hancock envisions platforms being 12x24 feet and about 1 foot off the ground.

Project #7 Comfortable Playground Seating

Our park has a great playground but no where truly comfortable for adults to sit nearby.  Options include fundraising, purchasing, construction and installation of wooden or recycled plastic bench swings and benches.
