Boy Scouts

On September 23-25, 2016, the Dr. Walter Dick Memorial Park in Brookville was invaded by Boy Scouts from neighboring communities.  Over fifty teenage boys spent two nights camping, learning and having fun at the Annual Bucktail Council Fall Camporee.   

After camping overnight, the scouts were up bright and early Saturday morning ready to learn. They were earning their fly fishing merit badge.  The learned about fly tying, knot tying, rules and regulations of fly fishing,and aquatic life found in our streams.   

Throughout the day, they visited different stations, learning valuable information while earning their badgeAt one of the stations, JCCD's Watershed Specialist, Grace Pesselato, taught the participants about macro-invertebrates and scouts were able to see and identify them.  Members of Trout Unlimited gave lessons on fly fishing and taught them how to tie flies.  It was a beautiful weekend for a camporee!
