    Troop 184 Cleans Trails at San Souci County Park

    Troop 184 Cleans Trails at San Souci County Park

    Over Memorial Day weekend, over 35 Scouts from Sayville Boy Scout Troop 184 spent their Friday morning cleaning up the trails of San Souci County Park on Broadway Avenue in Sayville.

    Scout Eric P. organized the Scouts into multiple teams of Scouts, adult Scouters and parents who spread out along the trails within San Souci.  Several hours later, the Scouts returned with tarps, tires, a tent and bags upon bags of refuse.

    Scouts follow the principles of Leave No Trace.  When in Nature, we aim to “leave only footprints and take only memories” from the areas that we visit.  This day, we were grateful that we could do more by cleaning up San Souci Park and leaving it cleaner than when we found it.

    To learn more about scouting opportunities in your neighborhood, please visit www.BeaScout.org.  Sayville Boy Scout Troop 184 meets on Monday evenings at St. John Lutheran Church on Greene Avenue in Sayville, New York.  Troop 184 is sponsored by the Sayville Chamber of Commerce.
