Andrew Hoadley’s Eagle Project


Andrew Hoadley, 14, attaches the rope around the Lone Wolf Tree so that sight impaired visitors can feel how big it while walking the Tupelo Trail at the South Shore Natural Science Center. The Wolf tree was the only one in the middle of a pasture and dates back to over 150 years so it grew substantially over that time. [Courtesy photo)

With the help of the SSNSC and the Talking Information Center, Hoadley developed the Tupelo Trail for Blind Hikers. The trail features series of posts that detail the natural surroundings for those with and without visual impairments by including both written and braille texts for hikers.

Ryan Conforti built a boat rack to benefit of the Cohasset Maritime Institute and the Center for Student Coastal Research. The structure, made of pressure-treated lumber, can hold up to eight boats and can accommodate several kinds of boats such as kayaks, canoes, single rowing boats, and double rowing boats.

Conforti said he and his designated Eagle Advisor, Phil Lehr, remained in constant contact for weeks on end as the two attempted to complete the project before Conforti departed for college on Aug. 18. With the help of Lehr and some of his brother’s friends, Conforti completed the project on Aug. 13, with just days to spare.
