Conservation Service Hours Available

This Saturday from 8:30 AM to about Noon(ish), Wood Badge will be cleaning up Camp 10 at Sid Richardson. Any youth who needs conservation service hours, this is a great opportunity as there will be weed control, mowing, brush clean up, and more going on. Camp 10 has not been maintained since course approximately 2 years ago, so there is plenty to do. We are also asking any adult who can come help to attend. There is a lot of power tool work to complete.

Please let them know you are coming so they can ensure lunch is available for you. Please notify Brian Moon (
