Creek clean-up

Our cub scout pack sponsors a section of the Creek Trail, and every year we go and pick up the trash that has accumulated along the trail.

This year our clean-up date turned out to be after the wettest few days of the year. We decided that it was not very scout-like to cancel our community service because of rain, so we went ahead with the event.

It was pretty exciting to be walking alongside the creek which was more full than I had ever seen it, sections of the trail downstream were closed due to flooding, but the town approved our section being open.

Only 5 cubs turned out but we still managed to collect 10 garbage bags full! Just as we finished the rain stopped!
