Scouts in the news (good!)
Thu, 17 Jun 1999 09:43:06 -0400
The July/August 1999 issue of Nature Conservancy magazine (published by the
Nature Conservancy) features Boy Scouts very prominently in their focus
article on the eradication of invasive exotic species (4 of the 9 photos,
plus one in the Table of Contents, as well as several mentions in the
text). The Scouts are from Troop 616, but I can't tell which council.
They are shown working hard to clear Brazilian pepper trees from a Nature
Conservancy site on West Summerland Key in Florida. The article is
entitled Clear-Cut Mission: Communities Unite to Free Native Landscapes
from the Grip of Invasive Species.
Always nice to see Scouts in a positive light!
