This is Ethan Fisher. He is the first Eagle candidate to complete all of the requirements necessary for an Eagle Scout Merit Badge at Blue Heron Nature Preserve. Ethan joyfully turned in his independent work, a month-long bird study and a plant-leaf identification collection, on May 25th.
Ethan enjoys birding, and already had a bird feeding station in his backyard, so the bird study came naturally to him. For the plant leaf identification, Ethan returned to The Preserve after our Nature Merit Badge Workshop and made his collection from the plants in our Workshop and ones he researched on his own. He shared with us that he also snacked on the plants that he learned were edible while he was doing his work. Congratulations Ethan; You are so bright!
