CHICAGO | Cub Scouts of Pack 773, who meet on the East Side, awoke early April 26 to help clean up Boy Scout Road once again.
For the 28th year, the Wolf Lake Conservation Project hosted the weekend of cleanup. One project was the cleanup of Boy Scout Road, which runs parallel to Wolf Lake and begins in Chicago near 134th Street and ends in Hammond by Sheffield. For over an hour the road was closed while Scouts and other concerned community residents cleaned up the trash. Although there are numerous "No Dumping" signs it appears that many motorists aren't willing to obey the request. The Scouts were also invited to help with the planting of tree saplings at the Environmental Education Center in Hammond.
The Scouts will receive a patch for their efforts and their contribution goes toward earning their Leave No Trace Patch. If you would like more information about the Wolf Lake Conservation Project contact Art Peschke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
204 meets at the Elks Lodge in Whiting
