Hi my name is Michael Milkavich and I am one of your 2013 SCA Manchester CLC Leaders. I have lived in Southeast Virginia all of my life, and have been living in Williamsburg since I was seven. Conservation and the outdoors have always been an interest of mine, and I fulﬁlled that curiosity through scouting. I joined scouts in 1996 and received my Eagle Scout award in 2007 having had many leadership positions and adventures along the way. After High School, I attended a local community college and spent some time studying geography at James Madison University in western Virginia. I also continued in scouting spending two summers working at Philmont Scout Ranch in northern New Mexico, the ﬁrst teaching proper tool usage and trail building techniques while leading projects, and the second summer studying invasive plants while educating others about them. I am looking forward this year to be able to share my skills and experiences with the local students, and I hope to instill in them the same sense of adventure and stewardship that has led me here today.
