Patch recently caught up with two teens who are committed to saving the local waterfront environment.
Joey Peake and George Masgay, both juniors at South River High, are Boy Scouts in Troop 815 of Edgewater and recently completed their Eagle Scout projects in an effort to better their community.
The teens planted grasses along the shore of the South River to fight against years of erosion on the waterfront. Watch the video above to see what their projects involved and why earning the Eagle Scout award is so important to them.
In the coming months, Peake and Masgay will go before a board of officials to see if they earned the right to officially become Eagle Scouts.
