Boy Scouts Get Life Experience

Jackson, Wy –
The Chief Executive of the Boy Scouts says that the best thing about a project in northwest Wyoming this week is what it does for the scouts.
Robert Mazzuca says the fact that over a thousand scouts are building trails and removing fences is certainly useful. But he says projects like this one, do much more.
it's wonderful for the environment. I'm really glad that 8000 feet of fence is gone, so those elk and antelope can get through there. But I'm much for thankful for the impact that has had on each individual young person that had a hand in doing that. And what that means for their lifetime and their understanding of service.
The Boy scouts have done similar work in four other states this summer.
