Dear Troop 355,
My name is Tom Moffat. I am a Life Scout and the current Senior Patrol Leader of Troop 355. I will be doing my Eagle Project at the Huntington Botanical Gardens on Saturday September 3rd and Sunday September 4th, which is Labor Day weekend. For my project, I will be installing a drip irrigation system on an area of land at the Huntington.
Description: We will be installing a drip irrigation system on approximately 6,125 square feet of land at the Huntington Botanical Gardens. Drip irrigation is becoming more popular because it uses about 70% less water than regular sprinklers. Installing a drip irrigation system would greatly benefit the Huntington and help reduce its water usage.
Where: Huntington Botanical Gardens, San Marino, CA
1151 Oxford Rd, San Marino, CA 91108
When: Saturday September 3rd, 2016 from 9:00am to 4:00pm
Sunday September 4th, 2016 from 9:00am to 4:00pm
I plan on having two shifts each day. A morning shift form 9-12:30 and an afternoon shift from 12:30-4. For those of you that plan on coming, please send me an email telling me that you plan on coming and during which shift. That will help me get an estimate on the number of scouts attending. Lunch, snacks, and bottled water will be provided for both groups.
I will send out another email the week of the project with detailed instructions about the project and directions.
