The DeLuz Ecology Center in Fallbrook is the site of Scout Ignacio Ramsey's Eagle Scout project.

FALLBROOK – Ignacio Ramsey, a Scout in Troop 301 in Temecula, recently completed his Eagle Scout service project by building three benches and installing them along a trail at the De Luz Ecology Center, just north of Fallbrook.

The trail is approximately a one mile loop and benches were installed in various scenic locations on the trail. The De Luz Ecology Center was originally built in 1926 and operated as a school through 1967.

Today, it is known as the De Luz Ecology Center and is owned and operated by the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District which uses it to educate the district's students about history, environmental studies and Native American studies.

After the initial planning and fundraising, Ramsey began the building phase of the project at the beginning of this year only to be interrupted and stopped by the Covid-19 pandemic. For most Eagle Scouts, once their project is planned and ready to be executed, fellow Scouts and other community volunteers show up to support the public service effort.

Although troops could not meet in person, scouting had to adapt, but did not stop.

Eagle projects continued to be planned and prepared until they could finally

complete them, safely in person. Under very specific conditions and following health guidelines they are allowed to meet outdoors in small patrols to complete service projects.

With the help of other Scouts, his family and his Assistant Scoutmaster, Ramsey was finally able to complete his project Saturday, Sept. 19.

Submitted by Temecula Troop 301.
