Earth Day at Little Sioux Scout Ranch

Posted on 17 April 2009 by admin

Community agencies are helping out at Little Sioux Scout Ranch as part of Earth Day, April 22.

Kinghorn Gardens will be providing landscaping in front of the brand new Welcome Center at Little Sioux Scout Ranch. This building is the first completed tornado shelter at camp, able to withstand winds up to 250 miles per hour.

Kinghorn Gardens is providing a landscaping plan, design and production to help make the Welcome Center more “welcoming” as part of their contribution to the Boy Scouts on Earth Day and the Professional Landcare Network’s (PLANET) nationwide day of service. PLANET is the national lawn and landscape association.

Great Western Bank is also making an environmental contribution at Little Sioux on Earth Day. They have donated 12 large trees to replace trees wiped out in the ranger’s yard during the June 11, 2008 tornado. The bank is planting the trees in addition to donating them.

There’s more to do at the Little Sioux Scout Ranch. If you’d like to help fund projects at Little Sioux Scout Ranch, or our camps, please call 402.431.9BSA (9272).
