There are few Scouting events that require minimal preparation, are fun, educate youth about ecology and contribute substantially to your community as picking up trash! Troop 353, along with three other local troops, has adopted a portion of the Bronx River Reservation park to keep free from accumulated garbage. This area has a paved walkway for cyclists and strollers alike and is heavily traveled. Since the paved walkway runs along side the Bronx River it is also a natural habitat for all types of stunning wildlife. As you can see in the accompanying pictures a solid contingent of youthful habitat explorers turned out one Saturday afternoon to run through the wood and then pick up some trash!
