The Fresno State campus, like many places in California, has suffered from the drought that has plagued the state for several years. It has meant that some of the dry, dead foliage on the campus grounds for Fresno State was in desperate need of replacement.
One Eagle Scout candidate recognized that Fresno State had been experiencing this challenge, and he wanted to help beautify the campus to help improve the campus grounds for all of those who attend the school.
The ABC 30 Action News in Fresno shared the story of how Scout Chris S. gathered a large group of more than a hundred committed volunteers to help make some improvements to the foliage on the Fresno State campus.
Chris and his crew of Scouts and other volunteers replaced a number of dead trees, helped plant shrub roses, and cleaned several areas of the campus. The impact of the restored foliage will be felt by all of the students who attend the school and see the beautifications that have been made to their campus.
