Huntington Beach, Calif.–Boy Scouts of America is a nonprofit organization that has long been known for its focus on the environment. Nowhere is that more evident than in Huntington Beach where good deeds often go unnoticed. Recently reporter Chris MacDonald was invited by Jean Nagy of the Huntington Beach Tree Society to provide coverage of an event in which Vincent Coleman, a Junior at Marina High School, worked toward his
Eagle Scout honors. Vincent, his family, friends, members of The Huntington
Beach Tree Society, plus community volunteers,
helped with this planting of 158 california native plants around the
new Riding Arena at the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center for
the Therapeutic Riding Center.
