My name is Kodi Moses and I am a sixteen-year-old Boy Scout at Troop 42 in Huntersville, NC. I became involved in scouting, in the first grade, as a Tiger Cub and have now, as a junior at Lake Norman Charter High School, advanced to the rank of Life Scout. Eagle Scout is the highest advancement rank in Boy Scouting and is earned by only 7 percent of all Boy Scouts. I am asking if you will help with my Eagle Scout Service Project.

I plan to build a 7 ft. by 8 ft. wide by 40 ft. long flight cage for the medical unit at the Carolina Raptor Center. The purpose of this cage is to provide flight space for re-conditioning, flight evaluation, and live prey training for small raptors (American kestrel, sharp-shinned hawk, eastern screech owl) helping the injured birds with rehabilitation so that they can fly again. Site preparation is complete, including removal of trees, but now I need your help with materials for the construction of the cage. Please remember that any donation will help and that any funds received in excess of the construction costs will go to the Carolina Raptor Center.

The Raptor Center is the largest medical raptor center in the United States and treated over 900 raptors in 2013. The additional rehabilitation space will greatly increase their capacity and shorten the stay of their raptor patients. The Carolina Raptor Center is a great supporter of Boy Scouts and relies heavily on Eagle Projects such as mine for improvements to their services and facilities. Mr. Jim Warren, Executive Director, of the Carolina Raptor Center is working with me to coordinate the project. He is available to answer any questions at 704-875-6521 ext. 112 or by email at jwarren@carolinaraptorcenter.org .

An Eagle Project must demonstrate leadership of others and provide service to a worthy institution other than the Boy Scouts. By choosing a construction project, I will serve as the project engineer or construction supervisor. In this case, the leadership role is straightforward. I develop the plans, obtain the materials, and then lead a crew in the labor. The team of volunteers that I lead in my project will provide all labor for the project.

Thank you for your consideration,
