For his Eagle Scout leadership service project, Creighton and the volunteers he led accrued 182.5 volunteer hours enhancing the Auburn Celebration Grove at the City of Auburn’s Kiesel Park. Together, they established a new trailhead and installed an informational kiosk. They also created a navigational system that includes new tree plinths and a corresponding web page listing the trees that comprise the Auburn Celebration Grove and those for which the trees are named, a dedicated geocache, and new benches for relaxation and mediation.
