Boy Scout Eagle and Girl Scout Gold Award Projects
The Friends of Jefferson Barracks and St. Louis County Parks are avid supporters of the Boy Scout Eagle and Girl Scout Gold Award projects in Jefferson Barracks Historic Park. These projects give the Scout an opportunity to plan, develop, and give leadership to others. These projects are evaluated on the benefit to the organization being served and on the leadership provided by the candidate.
