freshman, and Boy Scout, Joey Musial recently built a butterfly garden at for his Eagle Scout project.
Musial is from Brentwood, and is in the Program for Exceptionally Gifted Students (PEGS) program at Lindbergh.
At Truman Elementary School, Musial and his PEGS classmates visited the school’s butterfly garden on several occasions during classroom activities. However when Truman students moved to Concord in 2011, they no longer had access to a butterfly garden.
Musial’s project provided a solution by giving back to the PEGS community while also fulfilling his Eagle Scout Project requirement.
Joey’s fellow Scouts in Troop 361 from Brentwood helped with the project, and Tom Krauska (aka Tom Terrific, the butterfly man) lent his expertise and donated the plants.
