My Eagle Project was to create a permanent primitive campsite area at Cathedral Caverns State Park, in Grant, Alabama. The campsite now provides a defined area for scout troops and other campers to set up tents and other campsite provisions. I created 20 sites for tents, a large fire pit for troop campfires and programs, installed a flag pole, and erected a covered bulletin board and sign board for posting park rules, programs, and announcements. I defined the campsites using cedar posts (from trees already cut down) and large rope. The fire pit was dug one foot deep, surrounded by large granite rocks, and lined with red volcanic rock. The total project required a total of 200 man hours to complete with donated materials and manpower provided by Troop 343.
