Eagle Scout Candidate Information

NOTICE

Due to staffing shortages, the Eagle Scout Project program is temporarily on hold.  We anticipate resuming the program late September or mid-October 2023 when the Recreation Supervisor position is filled.  Please check back then.  


Snohomish County Parks and Recreation would love to work with you to create and complete your Eagle Scout Project.

  • Eagle Scout Projects support Parks and Recreation initiatives and our region work plans.
  • You as an Eagle Scout Candidate make a difference.
  • We expect you as the Eagle Scout Candidate to take the initiative and communicate with Snohomish County Parks a minimum of 120 days before the project completion goal - so start planning early.
  • While some degree of parental / guardian involvement is expected, initial contact should be initiated by the candidate himself.
  • We are looking forward to your initiative, follow through, and completion of this very important step in becoming an Eagle Scout.

Note: Applications for new projects are not accepted during the months of May - August, however, approved projects can be completed at any time of the year.

Steps
