Troop 125 and friends had a busy weekend, working with troop member Josh Miller to complete his Eagle service project in the Gallatin National Forest between the Idaho border and Hebgen Lake. Scouts -- including 11-year-old scouts and a few members of Varsity Team 125 -- and leaders cleared a lot (and I mean a lot) of alder and pine from the sides of a 1.2-mile ATV trail south of Hebgen Lake over the June 20-21 weekend. The scouts and leaders contributed in excess of 150 service hours to the project. Rangers also let us know that they've got plenty of trails that need similar maintenance, so any other Eagle Scout candidates looking for a project are welcome to contact them. Josh still has a few merit badges to finish up before he can be awarded his Eagle, but getting the project done is a major step forward. Congratulations to Josh and his father Jeff.
