Recently, Den Leader Jennifer Bechtel, a Milton resident and leader of a fourth grade den of Webelos in Pack 3000 (chartered out of Birmingham UMC), asked the city for ideas on a conservation project to complete a badge requirement.
The pack decided that marking storm drains with "No dumping" stickers would be an educational and fun project. The scouts enjoyed helping out and learning from the project.
Thanks to the scouts, about 50 storm drains were marked - and the boys also picked up litter and handed out educational literature about pollution.
If you would like to know more about water pollution and how to prevent it, please contact Sustainability Coordinator Cindy Eade at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
