Sam Coles, 15, of Maricopa, is working toward becoming an Eagle Scout. That involves completing his Eagle project, an event he must organize to benefit the community.

He brought together adults and kids to spread gravel at specific locations in Pacana Park to help prevent erosion and “just to make it look nicer.” Sam picked the project from a list of volunteer opportunities from the City of Maricopa parks department.
