Now that we’ve got two trips under our belts, it’s time to get ready for our November trip to Dennis, MA for our conservation project! Sue and I are the adult leaders, while Roberto is our intrepid youth leader.
We’ll be going down to the Cape to help the Dennis Conservation Trust with invasive species removal. The work will take place on Saturday, but we’ll head down Fri and come back Sun as usual.
Who should go?
As always, the trip is open to anyone, but this trip is required for anyone interested in going to Philmont next summer. In addition, this trip can count towards your school community service requirements if you have those! It’s also often a good trip to check off some rank requirements.
How can I help and/or prepare?
We’re especially looking for adult drivers to join us on this trip! If you have garden gloves or lawn clippers/cutting tools, those would also be helpful.
If you’re thinking of going on the trip, make sure your gear is up to date and you have long sleeves, pants, and closed-toe shoes readily available! It’s also not a bad idea to start thinking of what some menu items could be! Remember: the food’s only as good as you make it. (Shout-outs to Tano Holmes and Andrew Hartness for their roles in teaching youth about cooking!)

Each Scout must have a permission slip signed by his or her parent or guardian. Download the permission slip here <www.troopcrew56.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/TC56PermissionSlip.pdf>. It is also available on the Troop website. Scouts must also be in good standing (up to date on dues and signed up for service hours with Dr. Holmes).
We’ll be announcing additional details tonight and at upcoming meetings, but in the meantime, email me and Sue back if you’re interested in joining!
