FLASHBACK FRIDAY! 8/23/2009-2019! Ten Years Ago Today!

This day 10 years ago marked the first time Troop 161 scouts participated in Operation Cleanstream on the Upper Meramec River! Troop 161 and Venture Crew 2161 scouts have picked up trash on this section of river every year for the last 10 years!

Environmental stewardship has always been part of the Scouting program and participation can be used towards rank advancement.

Of the 20 scouts who participated in this river cleanup ten years ago, 12 scouts went on to be Eagle Scouts:
Nick Berron (2014), David Burke (2014), Chris Cain (2013), Chris Dlugos (2014), Kyle Gibbs (2014), Andrew Hoffman (2014), Nick Magana (2015), Nano Marin (2012), Thomas Menteer (2014), Michael Neuhoff (2014), Rob Sandroni (2014), Jacob Schnurbusch (2013).

Of those who participated in OCS the following years, 6 additional scouts went on to be Eagle Scouts:
Ben Blittschau (2017), Nathan Boning (2016), Max Kriegshauser (2018), Sean Lamb (2016), Allen Shorey (2017), Alex Strebler (2017).

Thanks to all the Scouts, Venture Scouts, families & friends (232 folks in all) who have helped on this project for the last 10 years!!
A BIG thanks as well to the Open Space Council, the Missouri Stream Team Program, and Bear & Tera Bass and their staff at Ozark Outdoors!!
