The Iowa Arboretum has been the home for many scout projects. Thank you to the scouts, their families, and friends for improving the arboretum.

Jaden restored the top half of the Herrick Memorial Trail steps as part of his Eagle Scout project.

“Leading my Eagle Scout project was a great experience that has change my life for the better. I am proud to have been able to volunteer at the Iowa Arboretum and make it a more beautiful place.”


Josh built the tunnel structure for the Children’s Garden section.

“I have learned so many different skills throughout my Eagle Scout project and it definitely brought me out of my comfort zone. It is one of the most rewarding things I have done in my life, and the skills I have developed during the project will stay with me for the rest of my life.”

Eagle Scout Projects have been generous supported by Modern Woodmen Chapters of Boone County, Lowes, Boone County Sportsmen’s Club and the Employees of Vision Bank.
