 Lucas Bettinger, ‘24, and his Eagle Scout team built a bridge in Walnut Woods. The bridge was fundraised through friends and family. 

“They had a whole list of projects to choose from, but I thought that the bridge would be the most challenging as far as testing my woodworking and engineering skills, as well as my ability to lead a team to complete the project,” Bettinger said. 

Bettinger said he was inspired by wanting to incorporate his woodworking and engineering skills into building the bridge. The bridge should now improve access to the newly established park.
