A documentary about Eagle Scout service projects that have benefited the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the visitor center at the refuge’s visitor center, 12985 U.S. 50 East, Seymour.
Boy Scout Joey Foyst, 14, of Columbus, made the 36-minute documentary for his Eagle Scout service project, and to highlight the refuge’s 50th anniversary. The refuge will officially celebrate its anniversary Sept. 17.
Eight Eagle Scouts previously conducted projects on the refuge between the years 1994 to 2012. Foyst contacted the Eagle Scouts, who were given the opportunity to talk about their project and what it meant to them.
He also helped the refuge complete its historical archive of Eagle Scout projects. Since 1981, more than 30 Eagle Scout service projects have been completed on the refuge.
Foyst, a home-schooled ninth-grader, is a member of Troop 552, which meets at First Christian Church.
