CHESTERTON | Cub Scouts from Pack 929, Dens 4 and 8 participated in a conservation project to earn the Cub Scout Leave No Trace Award.

The Cubs Scouts picked up litter along Calumet Road from 1100N to the Chesterton Post Office, filling eight trash bags. This clean-up project was requested by Jim Ton, District 1 Town Council member and was organized by Greg Schoeneck, Boy Scout chartered organization representative, Kris Lauzon, Wolf Den leader and Shawn Rutkowski, Bear Den leader.

The Leave No Trace Principles teach the Cub Scouts how to respect the outdoors by planning ahead and being prepared before an outing, staying on designated trails, disposing of waste properly, leaving what they find in the wilderness, minimizing campfire impacts, respecting wildlife and being kind and respectful to others they may encounter. Cub Scout Pack 929 meets at the First United Methodist Church in Chesterton and includes boys from Bailey, Brummitt, Liberty and Yost Elementary Schools.
