Cub Scout Pack 346 volunteers to remove invasive shrubs
Cub Scout Pack 346 from Cokesbury United Methodist Church earned service hours toward the World Conservation and Leave No Trace Awards by volunteering at Ijams recently.
The scouts and their parents pulled 20 cubic yards of Amur bush honeysuckle and Chinese river privet from the Ijams forests near the Will Skelton Greenway. These shrubs are invasive when they escape from cultivation and choke out wildflowers and tree seedlings, compromising forest health.
The pack leader, Michael Hill, states that the pack consists of six Dens of Cub Scouts and Webloes and has nearly 100 members.
Ijams thanks you for your hard work.
