Spagnardi Completes Eagle Scout Project

Patrizio Spagnardi III completed his Eagle Scout Project on May 24 at McCarthy’s Wildlife Sanctuary. Spagnardi and a crew of more than 20 volunteers tore down and reconstructed an existing turtle enclosure and also built a second new turtle enclosure. Completing a service project is one step on the way to obtaining Eagle Scout, the highest rank in scouting. Spagnardi chose McCarthy’s Wildlife Sanctuary after growing up seeing many of their animal presentations at local schools and through scouting. The facility rehabilitates sick and injured animals with the goal of releasing them into the wild. The sanctuary also houses confiscated animals. Shown here is Spagnardi with his plaque.
