This past Saturday, April 17, Boy Scout Troop 856 hosted its first River Sweep.  There were 37 participants in attendance.  Lots of fun was had by all canoeing and wading in the creek while picking up trash.  We hauled away a full trailer load of trash.  While sweeping the area of trash, we also helped Ian Osborne, an Eagle Scout candidate in the troop, build a bridge along the walking/biking trail that runs beside Crabtree Creek. Significant progress was made toward completion of the project, and it is anticipated that the bridge will be completed soon.  Pictures will be posted on the website soon.
