On Saturday, April 5, over 75 Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts at the Dan Beard Scout Reservation and over 30 Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts at Camp Michaels learned about conservation while helping our camps at the spring Camp Conservation Day.
Hundreds of sapling trees were planted along the banks of the Little Miami River. Scouts also staked protective tubes over the trees to protect them from hungry deer and the elements.
Invasive honeysuckle was removed from the woods around the Mountain Man Village at Cub World, preparing the area for new natural growth.
Everyone was treated to a hot lunch, prepared with an emphasis on environmental soundness and using only biodegradable products.
Scouts camping for the weekend were invited to a cracker barrel on Saturday evening.
