Boy Scouts plant trees to honor Forestry centennial

The Boy Scouts of America planted thousands of trees to honor the 100th anniversary of the Kentucky Division of Forestry. The event took place Saturday at Fishtrap Lake in Pike County. Guided by the Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative, Scouts gathered and camped on the reforestation site before planting native hardwood saplings. Representatives from the U.S. Forest Service, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, the American Bird Conservancy, and the Kentucky Department of Natural Resources will man “Learning Stations,” offered educational presentations to help the Scouts earn their Soil and Water Conservation, Fish and Wildlife Management, Forestry, and Environmental Science Merit Badges.
