Connor Burns, William Fritz, Bailey Man and Nicholas Mrachek, members of Boy Scout Troop 127 from Agoura Hills, celebrated earning the rank of Eagle Scout at a Court of Honor held in August at Juan Bautista de Anza Park, Calabasas.

Over 150 family, friends and local dignitaries attended the ceremony.

The four Scouts are recent high school graduates. Over the years they have participated in many Scouting activities, including a week at BSA Sea Base Bahamas.

Burns’ Eagle project involved extending a decomposed granite pathway at de Anza Park to an existing hiking trail and refurbishing several barbecue coal bins.

A graduate of Agoura High School, Burns is attending UC Irvine.

For his Eagle project, Fritz installed traffic fencing at King Gillette Ranch and refurbished several handicap accessible picnic tables.

Fritz graduated from Oak Park High School and is a freshman at the University of Nebraska.

The Agoura Animal Shelter was the beneficiary of Man’s Eagle project. He coordinated the construction of new boxes for use in for the capture and relocation of snakes from areas of human interaction to safety.

Man is a graduate of Agoura High School. He is attending UC San Diego.

Mracheck’s Eagle project took place at the Agoura Bible Fellowship Church. He rebuilt fencing using sustainable Ipe wood; reinstalled an irrigation system; and improved the appearance of the area with new plantings.

The El Camino High School alumnus is a freshman at The Ohio State University.
