Galveston Life Scout is seeking partners in Eagle Scout project
by Collin Sommerville
Tuesday, June 26, 2018

My name is Collin, and I am a Life Scout in the Boy Scouts of America program in Troop 123.  I was thinking of what to do for my final step towards becoming an Eagle Scout: The Eagle Scout Project. I have always liked animals, as I have two dogs at home, and I wanted to do something to benefit dogs. One day, I finally had the idea to build a dog agility course at Lindale Dog Park in Galveston TX, the city I live in.

Eagle Scout ProjectA dog agility course is a great way to spice up an ordinary dog park. A regular field of grass becomes a nice playground for dogs to run and jump around in, providing them with both a great and fun way to exercise. Dog owners benefit from this too, as they exercise alongside their canine friends. In addition, a good amount of people train their dogs to run on such a course competitively.

Let us be honest; everyone loves dogs. I am building the agility course for both dogs and people alike. Plenty of people in Galveston would like a dog agility course built in one of the dog parks. However, equipment for such a course is quite expensive.  There are also tools, concrete, and mulch to account for as well.

So, I need you to help bridge that gap so that I, along with other Scouts in my Troop, can build one.

Thank you so much in advance for your support. Every little bit helps!
