Bothell resident, 13-year-old Daniel Anderson, has completed the requirements for the Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout Award.

Anderson is a member of Troop 651 of the Chief Seattle Council. He received his award Dec. 10, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Woodinville.

For his Eagle project, Anderson organized and led more than 20 volunteers to remove and install new fence posts to beautify and enhance safety at Cascade Park, a campground in Granite Falls. More than 80 hours were donated collectively to accomplish this goal, according to a press release.

Anderson has served in his troop as the assistant patrol leader. He also enjoys performing service, and on many occasions has ferried boxes and furniture for people moving in and out of the community, the release states. In the future, he would like to help with a community garden, as he enjoys planting and growing food and would like to continue to help others regularly.

In addition to scouting, the eighth grader enjoys science, and especially astronomy. He is also an outdoorsman who enjoys camping, hunting and fishing, according to the release. Anderson is an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in a presidency for the young men in his age group.

Anderson is the son of Dale and Bethany Anderson of Bothell.
