Eagle Scout Projects

Plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project at the Zoo. In addition to providing service and fulfilling the part of the Scout Oath, “to help other people at all times,” one of the primary purposes of the Eagle Scout service project is to demonstrate leadership skills. Related to this are important lessons in project management and taking responsibility for a significant accomplishment.

For information on available Eagle Scout projects please contact 407-323-4450 ext. 120 or email stephanie@centralfloridazoo.org
