Eagle Project Review

Scouts looking to advance to the Eagle rank have the choice of dealing with whichever area is most convenient for them.

For Eagle project approval  Scouts may work with Chris Kolm [email protected] or work with Mark Paulson [email protected]. Mr. Kolm will review projects via email.  Mr. Paulson will work with the Scouts via email and will set up an appointment when the project is ready for District approval.

For Eagle Boards of Review  Scouts may contact Herb Lederman for Eagle Boards of Review in the Lamorinda area. Scout using Herb Lederman for Eagle Boards should submit their Eagle applications and binders to Bruce McGurk. Scouts may also contact Gordon Bell for Boards of Review. 

In-person boards have resumed for Scouts working with Herb Lederman [email protected].  Scouts working with Gordon Bell [email protected]  are now in person. Gordon Bell’s Eagle Boards of Review are held on the third Wednesday of each month at Grace Presbyterian Church 2100 Tice Valley Blvd. in Walnut Creek. Herb Lederman’s Eagle Boards of Review are held on the first Tuesday of each month at St. Monica Catholic Church in Moraga.

Eagle Scout Rank Applications must be downloaded from Scoutbook.

Downloading Eagle Rank Application From Scoutbook

All Scouts who are preparing for their Eagle Boards of Review should ask their Scoutmaster, Committee Chair, or Advancement Chair to download the Rank Application from Scoutbook to make sure that all Merit Badge and other dates agree with Council records.  The unit leader should log in using their My.Scouting ID, go to My Dashboard, click on the Reports Menu at the bottom of the page, select Eagle Application, and then enter the Scout’s BSA Member ID and last name.  The application will then be downloaded as a fillable PDF that can be completed, printed, and signatures obtained.

Eagle Project Ideas


     Is your Scout looking for an Eagle Project? As we hear from organizations that have projects for Scouts, we’ll list them here each month.
Boundary Oak Golf Course
Boundary Oak Golf Course has about a dozen owl boxes that need to be rebuilt or have new ones built. They are midsize houses that go on their trees. Contact Tim Roberts [email protected].

Lar Rieu Park

     Lar Rieu Park is a small community park located in Walnut Creek. The park is currently undeveloped and has many potential Eagle projects. (Trail construction, yoga pad, plant installation, etc.) Mark Clar (an Eagle Scout) is leading the effort to build some infrastructure for the park in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation Department for the City of Walnut Creek. Contact Mark Clar [email protected] 


Orinda Historical Society & City of Orinda


     The Orinda Historical Society is looking for an Eagle Scout candidate to construct a sign similar to the picture above. The sign would provide information about the California and Nevada Railroad and how that railroad is connected to the growth of Orinda.

St. Marks Nursery School

     St. Marks Nursery School in Orinda has a need for work on their play yard.  The projects that we currently have on our list include:
  • 5 misc workbenches/storage boxes for loose parts work/storage
  • 1 wooden outdoor worthy play kitchen (for young/small preschoolers)
  • 4 wooden tables with or without benches that are outdoor worthy and light enough to move easily

More or different projects are possible – we have inspiration boards to share.  We feel very fortunate to have had so many wonderful projects completed over the year.

Walnut Creek C.E.R.T.

     Walnut Creek Community Emergency Response Teams have a project for a Life Scout seeking to become Eagle. Contact Beth Smith for more information or click here for a more detailed description.

     For this project, the Scout would help equip 16 of our search and rescue teams (two teams for each CERT area) with all the equipment they will need to carry with them out in the field.  This is a fairly straight forward project, but it has a lot of moving parts because of the variety of medical supplies and equipment that is needed.  This is not a difficult project, but the Scout who takes it on must be very detailed oriented.
     Before the Scout accepts this project, Beth Smith would like to meet with him to discuss some of the specific types of equipment we need.  Also, Ms. Smith has a lot of contacts who can help the Scout acquire some of those supplies.  And, he might look at financing this project by asking for support from local service organizations, such as Lions, Kiwanis, Rotary, etc.
