Tree Ring Project
Riverton City Arborist sprays tree rings throughout the city. Once the grass has died, the tree ring needs to be filled with bark. The city requires a minimum of 75-100 tree rings be filled with bark in order to qualify as an Eagle Project. Riverton City provides the bark. The Scout must provide shovels, wheel barrows, and rakes for the project.
