Pascucci said he has been a Scout for seven years and is now taking more leadership roles in his troop.
He is one of several Scouts who chose a conservation area in Derry for an Eagle Project.
Wendy Moody said her son took on a very involved project, but it was a good choice for his Eagle award.
“This was one of the most extensive projects for a conservation project,” she said. “But he loves to explore and he loves to camp.”
Pascucci said the next step toward earning his Eagle award is Oct. 14, when he will meet with a committee to review his project. He will get his Eagle honor in a ceremony on Nov. 6.
