Tom Marrs Urban Award
Verdugo Hills Council
2” X 2”
This award has been developed in honor of Thomas Marrs, Eagle Scout and respected long-time leader and teacher of high adventure. He often noted: "High Adventure is any event or trip away from the regular meeting place!" and felt it was important for Scouts to develop an understanding of their local community and its history.

Participate in a “substantial” trail building or conservation project over Christmas Break (or in the month of December), of at least 6 hours work. The definition of ‘substantial” is left to the judgment of the unit leadership, but should be something more than trash pick-up.
