An intrepid team of cub scouts from Den 3, Pack 118, led by Carl Ericson spent several hours on Saturday, February 9 clearing trash and debris from the Redding Land Trust parcel that includes the Dan Beard Trail.
“Our thanks go out to Carl and Pack 118. Volunteers play such an important part in preserving our open spaces around Redding,” said Bruce Given, RLT Trustee. “From trail tenders to scouts, to hikers who pick up after others, we rely on their willingness to help.”
The trail, which the pack plans to adopt, is named after one-time Redding resident Dan Beard, illustrator of several Mark Twain books and founder of the Sons of Daniel Boone, which later merged with the Boy Scouts of America.
