Boy Scout Eagle Project to beautify Reseda

Boy Scout Eagle Project to beautify Reseda

The Idea

:

I will be removing debit and weeds from a blighted area in Reseda, CA. I intend to plant trees for shade, distribute mulch for soil improvement, plant drought-tolerant resistant shrubs for soil conservation, secure benches for community enjoyment and make this area a place of pride and enjoyment.

Your Team

As a Boy Scout Eagle Project, I will be supervising other Troop 10 scouts, volunteers from the neighborhood and Councilman Zine's office, TreePeople Volunteers and overseeing the entire project.

The Community

:

The community has already adopted my project and have agreed to assist the day of planting as well as maintain and water the plants after completion.

The Need

:

My project addresses the need for greener spaces within LA for which the community can enjoy and take pride in. The City of LA & Reseda Police Dept plan to dedicate this space to fallen Firefighters.

Location

:

Yes, I have permission to beautify a 2 block area on Crebs Street south of Sherman Way in Reseda.

Timing

:

This project is planned for Sept. 15th & 16th, 2012. Fall is the best time to plant trees.

Is there any rationale behind which plants are going to be used (for example, natives to provide food for local wildlife, or trees that are water-wise for the SFV temperature extremes)?

Yes, we're using drought tolerant flowing shrubs to beautify the area while being water-wise. The area is in the middle of the San Fernando Valley, so we're replanting trees which the city wants to move from the county owned to the city owned side. All of the trees and plants will sustain the high temperatures of the valley. Donations have also been secured from some local nurseries to ensure their tolerance.
