Austin American-Statesman - - LOCALBRIEFING -

Zach Moss­man, 17, son of Tim Moss­man of Austin and Jenny Sawyer of Round Rock, has earned the Ea­gle Scout rank­ing, the high­est level of recog­ni­tion in the Boy Scouts.

He re­cruited and man­aged more than 30 vol­un­teers land­scap­ing a 5,000square-foot area in Berry Springs Park and Pre­serve in Wil­liamson County. Dozens of low-main­te­nance plants — in­clud­ing cac­tus, yucca and agave, along with pecan trees, wild­flower seeds, and a few thou­sand pounds of land­scape rocks and crushed gran­ite — were in­stalled to cre­ate a South­west-themed fo­liage di­vider at the en­trance of the long-term camp­ing area.

He is a mem­ber of Ven­ture Crew 465, char­tered by the Church of Je­sus Christ of Lat­ter-day Saints in Austin, and will be a se­nior in the fall at Round Rock High School.
