    Sandstone Canyon Trail Hike
    Don Robinson State Park
    Cedar Hill, MO
    January 13, 2018

    Thanks to everyone who attended the Sandstone Canyon Trail Hike at Don Robinson State Park. The day was partly sunny with temperatures that held in the teens and twenties.

    Don Robinson State Park is a new 818 acre State Park that opened to the public in 2017. The area is in the upper watershed of the high quality stream Labarque Creek and features beautiful sandstone box canyons, cliffs, glades, surrounded by upland and bottomland forests. It was Don Robinson's wish that upon his death (2012) that his property be donated to the Missouri Park System to be enjoyed by all visitors.

    Blackberry Hollow Day Hike
    Beaumont Reservation
    High Ridge, MO
    January 6, 2018

    Crew 2161 folks braved day temperatures between 4 and 22 degrees on an otherwise beautiful winter day along the 5.2 mile Blackberry Hollow (Red) Trail at Beaumont Reservation. We saw no others during the 5 hours we spent on the trail, but we did see several deer, a rafter of about 18 turkeys, and a pileated woodpecker.

    Don Schnurbusch adds:
    Crew Mates,
    Thank you to the brave souls who hiked on Saturday morning when the temperature was a brisk 4 degrees at game time, (what were they thinking?) Chef Ramsey treated us to grilled steak and noodles at Blackberry Hollow, man was that tasty! Andy wasn't able to join us, I understand it wasn't cold enough for him!

    Green Park, MO
    November 18, 2017

    St. Simon Scouts and Venturers assisted packing hundreds of cases of food again at this year's "Scouting for Food" campaign.
    Scouts and volunteers at Mehlville's Firehouse #5 packed 1,480 cases of food. Area scouts collected 1,978,195 food items this year even though the day brought plummeting temperatures, cold wind and rain. Thanks to all that helped this year, including the scouts, venturers, adult leaders, and family members.
    Thanks to all who donated food items for those less fortunate.

    Operation Cleanstream
    Meramec River, Walkers Ford to the Bluff
    Ozark Outdoors, Leasburg, MO
    August 13, 2017

    Thanks to our Venture Crew, Scouts, their families and friends for participating in Operation Cleanstream at Ozark Outdoors. Thanks also to our guests, Stream Team veterans Debbie and Stacy for joining us. This year is special because it marks the 50th year anniversary of Operation Cleanstream, first started in 1967. This is the 8th consecutive year our scouts have covered the "Walkers Ford to Bluffs" section.

    Over the last several years trash was becoming harder to find. This year was an exception though with more trash and tires collected than any previous year. This is probably contributed to the recent record Meramec floods of 2015 & 2017.

    The float was very nice, the weather was very pleasant and the river very clear. Trash collected included a dishwasher, tractor tire, truck tire, 17 passenger car tires, car parts, barbed wire, a wagon, lawn chairs and several trash bags full of smaller debris. Unusual items found were a rodent skull and a Grateful Dead "Shakedown Street" road sign.

    Thanks to Ozark Outdoors, Bear, Tera and their staff for coordinating the Upper Meramec Watershed for this great event! Thanks also for providing breakfast, canoes, equipment, shuttle service and trash disposal as well!

    Thanks to Missouri Stream Team for providing the T-shirts, first aid kits, gloves, trash bags and a state-wide network of Stream Team volunteers.

    And... Thanks to the Open Space Council for the leadership, financial support and coordination of their signature project!
    Congratulations on 50 years of Operation Cleanstream!

    Be sure to check out the float map, with a few of our favorite landmarks.
