Entry Description
Commission Approves 1,000th Project

In February the Indiana Bicentennial Commission approved its 1,000th legacy project! When the commission was founded in 2012, the goal for legacy projects was 200. Now, with more than five times the original goal the projects have an impact on all Hoosiers across the state.

The four pillars of the Bicentennial are youth and education, nature preservation, historical celebration and community involvement. The 1,000th project celebrates youth and education, but also incorporates history, nature and community involvement.

The 1,000th project was submitted by Crossroads of America, Boy Scouts of America. The project, titled “Cardinal Nest Houses” will take place in seven counties: Marion, Madison, Fayette, Johnson, Delaware, Vigo and Montgomery.

All cub scouts, boys ages 6-10, who participate in the summer Day Camps will build a cardinal nest house with assistance from volunteers and camp staff.

“Scouts will be challenged to place more than 3,000 pre-made Cardinal nest houses in seven different counties across our council,” said Patrick Sterrett, Scout Executive, Crossroads of America Council, Boy Scouts of America. ”Continuing the legacy of the state bird and its habitat through nature conservation is an exciting way to celebrate the Bicentennial through education.”

The scouts will learn about the state bird and its relevance to Indiana. They will also be taught about the sustainability and the importance of both their environment and their community.
