My name is Matthew Bazarevitsch and I will be doing my Eagle Project on July 23rd and July 24th. I will be a senior at St. Francis High School and I am a current Life Scout in Troop 355.
My Eagle Project will take place at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy in La Canada. We will be refurbishing 300 feet of a railing and planting a drought-tolerant garden. This is a popular hangout spot during breaks at school, and it will be important to refurbish the railing to get rid of the rust, and make the area look nicer.
On July 23rd, we will focus on the refurbishing of the railing. We will be sanding off the old paint and rust, and repainting the 300 feet of railing. Depending on the amount of people in attendance, we may also begin working on the garden.
On July 24th, we will focus on the drought-tolerant garden. Right now, it is a plain stretch of hard dirt. We will begin by turning the soil and putting fertilizer in it to soften it. When the soil is ready, we will be planting drought-tolerant (and deer-tolerant) plants. When all plants are planted, we will finish off the garden by placing a layer of mulch. The garden will complement the railing as we liven up the entire area!
Dates and Times: July 23-July 24, 9:00am – 5:00pm both days

Parking: There is a parking lot across the street from the project. It will be on the right side of the road as you begin to approach the school
Food: Lunch, drinks, and snacks will be provided
Sunscreen will also be provided. We will also have a few easy-ups for shade.
Clothing: We will be sanding, painting, and planting, so I suggest comfortable clothes that you do not mind getting a little bit dirty. Because it is July, it will be hot so a t-shirt and shorts are suggested.
