Edward Chiang achieves rank of Eagle Scout

Holland resident Edward Chiang has earned his Eagle Scout Award and was recently recognized in a special Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony.

Eddie, a member BSA Bucks County Council Troop 147 out of the Northampton Presbyterian Church in Holland, earned Boy Scouts’ highest honor after successfully completing his Eagle service project, an environmental restoration at the Churchville Nature Center.

The goal of Eddie’s project was to restore a wetland that has dried up. All the water from the wetland area drains into several creeks carved out by erosion. The project involved digging trenches and installing large coconut fiber tubes that would dam up a creek. Over time, nature will take over; silt will build up behind the tubes, and restore the wetland back to its previous condition. The wetland provides resources and sustenance for plants and wildlife.
