Many thanks go to the Scouts who have brought so many key projects to life along the Lehigh Valley Trail over the last two decades. We have done our best to list all of the Eagle Projects along the Trail that we have in our records in the roster below. It should be known, however, that there were countless other group projects that occurred along the way, which are not listed here. If you see something missing — or if you would like to be in a future version of this list — please reach out using the form at the bottom of this page.
