Salt Valley District holds bi-annual (Fall & Spring) Life-to-Eagle Seminars. All Life Scouts, parents of Life Scouts, and interested Scouters are strongly encouraged to attend one of these seminars before they begin their journey to Eagle. In addition to providing the most current information on the Eagle Scout Service Project and other Eagle Scout rank requirements, these seminars provide the opportunity to address recent issues and answer questions.
Prospective Eagle Scout candidate’s may attend a seminar in another District but Scout’s must know that procedures can vary district to district. It is the Scout’s responsibility to recognize the difference in procedures.
