Eagle Scouts have helped WBR with various projects for many years. One of the first projects was caging designed for our Big Bend facility. This cage gave many of our birds the space to grow. Soon we had a aviary project designed for us by a Girl Scout as her Gold Award. Watching all these scouts going through the process - designing, getting approval, leading work groups and finishing these projects, reinforced my belief that there are a lot of talented and dedicated young people willing to help their community.

Boy Scouts celebrate their 100 year anniversary this year, and Girl Scouts their 98th. Thought you might like to see what they’ve done for us.
