May 3-5 - 2019 Upper Missouri Watershed Alliance Service Project
This service project will include removal of Russian Olive trees and other undesirable plants from a section of stream bank and re-planting with desirable plants and shrubs. It's an opportunity for Troops and Crews to earn conservation service hours, work on rank advancements or teach rank advancements, and work on the Fishing, Fly Fishing, Soil and Water Conservation, or Bird Study Merit Badge. This will be done on a rotating basis with about 1/3 of the camp at a time working on the service project.

You will be camping, all meals except Friday night will be provided.

Check-in and camp set up will be Friday night. Service work will begin Saturday morning and conclude by early afternoon on Sunday. Service work will include removal of Russian Olive trees and other undesirable plants from a section of stream bank and re-planting with desirable plants and shrubs. You will need camping gear, BSA field and activity uniforms, work gloves, sturdy shoes, etc. This will occur rain or shine, hazardous weather excluded.

Because of the size of the project this year and limited space we have to limit this to a maximum of 30 scouts. Sign up here

All units (Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts) need a tour permit when they are leaving their city limits in which their unit meets for a day outing or a campout, per BSA regulations.  For the safety of you and your Den, Pack or Troop, please abide by these regulations.  Tour permits can be downloaded from the Council website.
