Troop 234 is happy to announce that Aaron Wolf has become our newest Eagle Scout. Aaron completed is Eagle Scout project by working with the Ojai Valley School to replace fencing destroyed during the 2017 Thomas Fire. The fencing protect the school’s solar panels from damage and falling debris, thereby minimizing damage and ensuring the security of the school’s sustainable energy activities.
Please join us in congratulating Aaron for his hard work!
In mid-December, scouts from Troop 234 and Webelos scouts from our affiliated Cub Scout pack, Pack 3234, engaged in a “Conservation Good Turn.” Under the guidance of local conservationists, scouts fanned out across the Upper Campus of the Ojai Valley School in the Upper Ojai Valley to construct feeding and watering stations for native birds whose habitat and feeding sources had been destroyed by the fire.
Even though the fire had moved west, smoke was still in the air. Scouts wore face masks and appropriate clothing, and helicopters and a hot-shot crew monitored the area to ensure safety.
The project the first in a series of restoration efforts aimed at helping the school recover from the Thomas Fire, which destroyed two of the school’s buildings and damaged a half-dozen others.
