May 5-6 - Upper Missouri Watershed Alliance Service Project
The Upper Missouri Watershed Alliance has approached the Prickly Pear District to help with a river bank restoration project. The project would involve planting tree cuttings along the shoreline of the Missouri River near the Wolf Creek bridge. The group is planning a work weekend for Saturday, May 5, 2018 and Sunday, May 6, 2018. Scouts are invited to come up and work either or both days (partial days or all day). The group is planning on providing at least lunch each day and that might be expanded. We are working right now to see if we could also make this into a fun camping weekend. Contact Loren Brown for more information.
