Geocache Description:

This is the first in a new series called “cache to Eagle” which highlight Eagle Service Projects by the Boy Scouts of Marin Council. I had to rehide it, so it is a little more challenging now but still doable for kids. It is still at the original coordinates.

Please be careful with the cache and don't remove the container from the camo - you can get to the log by just screwing off the cap. The Photo highlights the Eagle Project site and may or may not include the location of the actual cache, although it will be nearby. If you look around, you will also see the blue fish stenciled on the curbs above all the drains, which says “no dumping; flows to bay”. This project was first done in 1997 by the son of Mousewiz and Scoutboy, Troop 84, and was recently redone soon by a new Eagle candidate from this troop. In addition to the curb painting, each boy did an extensive public awareness campaign, most recently as a slide presentation to multiple school classes. The first project was funded by a grant from "Earth Day Every Day". This was the first of many storm drain labeling Eagle projects throughout Marin – they have the goal of reminding people to protect our Bay waters by being careful of their waste disposal.

Scouting provides a tremendous number of service hours to the community. If you took the total hours of community service conducted by the Marin Council in one year and assigned that to a single individual working 40 hours a week…how long would it take them to accomplish the same amount of service? Answer: 18.95 years! Earn the Cache to Eagle patch! See to learn how.
