Eagle Scout Project At The Factory Brook Nature Area This summer, Boy Scout and Homer High School student Neil M. completed his Eagle Scout project at the Factory Brook nature area behind the Junior High. Neil’s project was to build a bridge to connect two trails over a seasonal stream. The bridge had to be large enough to carry a substantial piece of equipment, which was no small task. With the help of his fellow scouts and leaders from Troop 79 as well as family members and friends, Neil constructed a fabulous new bridge that will enable our grounds staff to maintain the area. Neil had guidance from Mr. Barry and was helped with financial assistance from the Homer Education Foundation and the Junior High student council. Check out the pictures of his project from start to finish. Thank you, Neil, for a job well done! Click  more ... more >>
