Trooping to the San Juans
Boy Scouts from Lake Oswego spend a week cycling and working with the San Juan County Land Bank on a service project
Ten Scouts and four adults from Lake Oswegos Troop 127 recently returned from a week of cycling in the San Juan Islands, where they worked with the San Juan County Land Bank on a service project that involved looking for the invasive European Green Crab.
In addition to working with the Land Bank, which buys private land and turns it back into public access on the islands in San Juan County, the Scouts picked up trash to help with clean-up efforts. Assistant Scoutmaster Allan Campbell says the group biked more than 60 miles on Lopez Island while camping at Spencer Spit State Park.
They did all of their own shopping and cooking, along with any preventative maintenance or repairs while on the road, Campbell says.
