Scouts clean up hill to earn green award

Provided to the Tribune

Provided to the Tribune Members of Cub Scout Pack 468 earned their Leave No Trace Awareness Award by cleaning up the Spooner sledding hill.

On May 16, members of Cub Scout Pack 468 cleaned up the Spooner sledding hill. This community service project was part of their requirements to receive the Leave No Trace Awareness Award.

The older boys, known as Webelos, already have earned this award and led the rest of the pack in helping them be more concerned about their environment.

As more people use parks and recreation facilities, Leave No Trace guidelines become even more important for outdoor visitors.

Cub Scout Pack 468 asks that people help protect the environment by remembering that while they are there, they are visitors. When you visit the outdoors, take special care of the area. Leave everything just as you find it. Hiking and camping without a trace are signs of a considerate outdoorsman who cares for the environment. Travel lightly on the land.
