Cub Scout Conservation Project

I was so thrilled to find a conservation project online for our County. I contacted the organizer and asked if our Cub Scout pack could get involved and they were thrilled we would volunteer to help. 
The day of the project just so happened to be the first day this Pacific Northwest had a storm. Trees were falling on the road just to get to the project site:

So only a handful of boys made it to participate but I have to say these guys were troopers! These boys worked hard in the heavy winds, mud and cold...the digging was HARD work! I'm very proud of these Scouts!

The digging was hard, we were out there in the wind and mud, and trees started to fall around us.

Before we ended up having to evacuate due to the falling trees and branches we were able to salvage these native plants:

These native plants will be replanted at the Snoqualmie river and the area where we dug out the plants will be a dam to create a habitat to help save our Chinook salmon

Bear Cub Scout Outing to Corn Maze

Our Bear Cub Scout Outing to the Corn 

So I was laughing at the Universe because for some odd reason the pumpkin patch mixed up my fire pit reservation from the cute kids maze "Spookley the pumpkin corn maze"  TO the HUGE Adult maze....seen here in the picture...we somehow were to find our way in the dark to fire pit #6 lol!!!! We managed to get to our pit and
we had a blast! It was fun making a campfire dinner right in the corn maze by a bonfire. We are working on our "Outdoor Activity Award" and we choose these activities to complete:

1. Participate in an outdoor activity such as a picnic or park fun day
2. Explain the buddy system and tell what to do if lost.
3. Participate in an outdoor campfire program. Perform in a skit, sing a song, or take part in a ceremony

We already completed a 4th activity for this badge by doing our nature walk at our last week's outing. Now, we only have one more activity to do for this award. Next week we will accomplish this by completing a nature/conservation project in our area.
