Boy Scout Troop 673 Joe Mohn’s Eagle Scout Project

“Trash Pickup at Terry Hershey Park”

Time:  8:00 AM -3:00 PM

Welcome.  My name is Joe Mohn and I am a Life Scout in Troop 673 and I am hosting a Trash Pickup at Terry Hershey Park on November 15, 2014 as my Eagle Scout Project with Bayou Preservation Association.  We will be cleaning Terry Hershey Park along Buffalo Bayou and along Langham Creek as a part of SHAC’s Council Service Day/America Recycles Day on Nov. 15.  I have separated the area into thirty-one, quarter mile segments and I hope to get 10 people per segment for a total of 310 people and your assistance will be most helpful.  There will be seven (7) Muster Points (MP) with crew leaders to assist the volunteers and they will begin at Highway 6 and run West to East (see table).  Each location will have a pop up tent with crew leaders to assist the volunteers.

Each segment will be marked with wire signs recycled from the upcoming election. This will help to identify the segments and show where one begins and another ends.  At each Muster Point there will be ample supply of drinks, sunscreen, and supplies for your use.  This project will be an all-day event from 8am to 3pm with lunch being provided.  We will use two different trash bags; black bags for trash and clear bags for recycle.  A limited number of litter grabbers will be available for use as well as gloves for all.

This project is one of four that I am working on for the Silver Hornaday Award.  The Hornaday Award is “an Olympic Medal Bestowed by the Earth” as the Hornaday website puts it.  Scouts obtain the Hornaday Award for completing conservation service projects.  You can learn more at: http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/Awards/HornadayAwards.aspx.

Dress appropriately:  Recommended long sleeved shirts, long pants, and sturdy shoes.
