Cub Scouts from local Pack 288 joined a record number of volunteers of all ages at Citizens for Conservation’s Make a Difference Day on October 27. Cub Scouts helped collect the soft, fuzzy seeds of prairie clover, the downy and fluffy seeds of little bluestem, and the plume-like feathery seed heads of Indian grass.
Upon returning from seed collecting, the scouts visited CFC's seed room where all the collected seeds are drying and awaiting cleaning before sowing. The scouts were in awe of how different each seed looked in appearance and were amazed at the amount of seed collected by CFC volunteers.
Each scout and his caregiver then joined the many other workday volunteers to enjoy CFC’s volunteer appreciation cook-out where burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, and many other delicious foods were served as a thank you.
