3 Eagle Scouts Give Back in Ridgewood

Boy Scout Troop 5 of the Ramapo Valley District awarded three scouts with the Eagle Badge last week: Tyler Hansen, Christopher Otterstedt and Luke Reinke. The Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouting, requires scouts to earn 21 merit badges. Only four percent of Boy Scouts are granted this rank after a lengthy review process. The requirements necessary to achieve this rank take years to fulfill. Since its founding, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by almost 2.5 million young men. Below are the Eagle Projects these young men completed for their award:

Tyler Hansen
Tyler led a project to build and hang four screeching owl nest boxes around Ridgewood. Raptors (birds of prey) are a declining species and these can help increase the population.

Christopher Otterstedt
Chris led a project to design and build the Skylab Innovation and Collaboration Station in Hawes Elementary School, where students can design and build projects using a variety of materials.

Luke Reinke
Luke led a project to design and build an outside educational classroom at Hawes Elementary School.
