Becoming an Eagle Scout has been more than a decade in the making for Landyn Lewey, and he literally had to dig deep to earn the honor.
Lewey's final community service project - required to become an Eagle Scout - was building a water garden (sometimes called a rain garden) at Calkins Nature Area. The garden was dug four feet deep on the north side of the sidewalk leading to the front doors of the Calkins Interpretive Center Building. It was then filled with large and small rocks, gravel and topsoil. The project was doubly effective as it serves a dual purpose.
