Today was the Guy Miller Tree Planting day for the pack. A few boys showed up and participated. There were 400 trees and a bunch of grasses to plant. This activity to me helps show the boys that it’s good to give back to the earth and community. It is the beginning of showing them that we must look at our surroundings and make them better.
This event also qualified the boys for Leave No Trace and the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity award. Which is really good since one of the boys joined in January and he is really working hard to catch-up with the Wolf Den to get his badge! This is one major reason to have an active pack. If there are things that you are doing as a pack, then boys will want to join and do things. Everyone can join the Couch Potato Pack, Troop or Crew. Joining a group of people that actually does something is more exciting.
