Scouts Pitch in for Spring Clean Claremore

scoutsTwo local Cub Scout packs and a Boy Scout Troop recently contacted us to see about getting involved with Spring Clean Claremore. There are plenty of projects to go around (we still need volunteers, y’all!).

First up is Troop 828 and Pack 28. Led by Cubmaster David Steward and Troopmaster Jason Schubert, they headed out to Happy Lake, near Claremore Lake, and got dirty! Happy Lake consists of primitive camping areas, a campfire ring and some bleachers. It’s also home to the Claremore Police Department shooting range.

The boys cleaned approximately 12 campsites, raked leaves and picked up garbage. They filled a 55 gallon drum with trash! They gathered brush and either used it to build fences for wildlife improvement, or disposed of it. After the hard work, they celebrated by toasting some chocolate chip marshmallows. scout3

Cub Scout Pack 310 offered its assistance with the Will Rogers Park Project. Led by Cubmaster Darrell Hicks, the boys collected lots and LOTS of brush! The Will Rogers Park is under a major renovation, so it was incredibly helpful that they boys were able to clear out so many branches. The Master Gardeners are working on a teaching garden, and this saves them from having to clean up as much.

A special “thank you” to all of the Scouts who have made Spring Clean Claremore a priority! All participants will earn their Earth Day badges as a result.
