FOMP Guidelines for Scout Projects

While the Friends of Monument Preserve organization is willing to assist Eagle Scout applicants in formulating, organizing, and completing projects within and around the Preserve, we must limit such requests to those with serious intent, as well as the maturity to stick with the project.

Thus, we require that the Eagle candidate be at least 16 years of age (we strongly prefer 17), and that the formal request be submitted to FOMP by early July, in order to have time to gather materials, volunteers, and logistic support for each project. All projects should be planned for completion prior to the start of the school year and no later than September 15.

We have many years of experience working with Eagle projects and usually have the capacity to support 2 to 4 such requests per year.

If you are a local Eagle Scout candidate, meet the above requirements, and looking for a project please reach out to us at
