Boy Scouts often partake in service-related projects for the Bolsa Chica Conservancy, with many choosing the BCC as their Eagle Scout Project Partner. The nature of these projects has varied in the past, including (but not limited to) construction of cabinets and snake terrariums for the interpretive center, native plant installation events, native plant propagation grow enclosures, and even establishing new trails. Each of these projects have greatly helped the Conservancy with its goals of conserving the wetlands.
Girl Scouts and their troops also help with service-related projects, but they also partake in educational tours and classes. Because of this, many Girl Scouts have completed their Silver and Gold awards through the Conservancy. Some of these projects included native plant propagation and installation of the coastal salt marsh, dune, and coastal sage scrub habitats in the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve. These projects have helped with the diversity and health of these sensitive habitats.
