Community Service

The following have been approved by the Scoutmaster, but transportation and supervision are to be provided by parents except for the Oak Grove BBQ and Eagle project workdays. Scouts should wear a Class B shirt and have someone from the organization sign a 3x5 card with the name of the organization and how many hours you worked. I have included websites for location and contact information. Please contact the parks to sign up for their updates since plans and conditions often change.

Woodlands Garden

Don't miss out on an opportunity to give back to greenspace this spring and summer!

Volunteer Projects are in action at Woodlands Garden and we welcome EVERYONE to join! Not only do volunteers help with essential, hands-on tasks like mulching which adds to the beauty of the Garden's trails, but they have a fun time connecting with each other in the great outdoors. Come give back to your local greenspace and meet some new Garden friends at the same time.
