Benicia Tree Foundation was the beneficiary of Sam Miller’s Eagle Scout Project (pictured above), which involved installing a sign describing a tree planting project sponsored by Benicia Tree Foundation at Robert Semple Elementary School in 2013. The trees surround the school playfield which is used by students, Little League and soccer teams. The sign’s purpose is to educate users of the playfield on these trees and how they came to be planted.
Sam designed the sign, had it manufactured and installed the sign at the school. He was also responsible getting approval from the school district and raising the funds to complete the project (thank you Benicia Community Foundation!). The sign was installed in July 2023.
