MILTON, Ga. — The Milton Boy Scout District, which includes the cities of Roswell, Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Milton, announced its newest Eagle Scouts, who passed their Board of Review on Dec. 4.

Duncan Hensley, of Troop 2000, was sponsored by Johns Creek Presbyterian Church. For his Eagle project, Hensley landscaped and enhanced a butterfly garden at Dolvin Elementary School. He removed the existing landscaping of a tree and a few bushes and then replaced it with a paved seating area, a tree in the middle of the area and a plant bed. He also put in a paved walkway lined with hedges up to the seating area.

Darren Craddock, of Troop 69, was sponsored by Alpharetta First United Methodist Church. His project was the design, construction and renovation of the Ocee Elementary School wildlife area. Craddock’s project included replacing the pump for the fishpond, planting new shrubs and plants and the construction of a bench.

Colin Wahl, of Troop 10, was sponsored by St. Benedict’s Catholic Church. His project was the improvement of the picnic area at Sloppy Floyd State Park. Wahl designed and built an 8-foot picnic table and a new fire ring.

James Barnard, of Troop 69, was sponsored by Alpharetta First United Methodist Church. His project was the design and construction of a hand railing on a set of stairs on the St. Aidan’s nature trail.
