Road To Eagle

Skyler's Eagle Project Highlights & Pictures: Brief History

This is an account of our son Skyler Ruesga Eagle project for Rancho Simi Rec and Park at the Simi Dog Park (Big Sky Park). This beautification project consisted of digging and leveling the outlying picnic area, pouring concrete, and laying stone to build a 65ft retaining wall in order to prevent silt from dirtying the Arroyo Simi. The project took place over 2 weekends to complete, and the scouts from Troop 698 helped him accomplish this task.

The weekend dates were as follows:

· Saturday, March 23, 2013 - Leveling Ground, Digging

· Sunday, March 24, 2013 - Laying Stone, Building Wall

· Saturday, April 6, 2013 - Laying Stone, Building Wall

· Sunday, April 7, 2013 - Laying Wood Chips, Clean Up

The project got completed ahead of schedule (by half-a-day) and within budget, despite a couple of challenges that Skyler overcame with flying colors (no water readily available, needing 2.5 tons additional rock, more cement bags, excess wood chips). 

Thanks to all the individuals involved so that Skyler could achieve this milestone and goals, which forge the character of the Scout and strengthen our community.

Skyler has worked in conjunction with Rancho Simi Rec & Park District to coordinate the completion of this project. Skyler has also solicited the contributions of local businesses to offset the costs of the project.

Contributions from businesses have varied, some financial, others with their time, materials, or lunch.

Contributing businesses were:

American Masonry, Peach Hill Soils, DCH Toyota of Simi Valley, Adam's Grading and Hauling, Home Depot, Anderson Rubbish, Dr. Ron's Animal Hospital, Dr. Thomas Rogers Optometry, Leo's Tree Service, Chi-Chi's Pizza, Ferretiz Grill/Burger Express Fresh Mex, Valley Veterinary Clinic, Albertsons, Costco, William L. Morris Chevrolet, Tapo Rock & Sand, and Nagel Orthodontics, Inc.

We've included a copy of Skyler's initial PowerPoint presentation to the Scout Troop committee and hand-out provided to businesses when soliciting contribution in person.
