Planting trees

Estill Springs Lions Club members gather to work alongside scouts from Cub Scout Pack #391 to plant red oaks, white oaks, redbuds and pine tree saplings in the Taylor Creek Greenway in Estill Springs.

Boys and girls from Cub Scout Pack #391, along with members of the Estill Springs Lions Club, recently got together to work on a service project at the local greenway.

Lions worked alongside scouts to plant over 20 saplings at the Taylor Creek Greenway in Estill Springs.

The trees were provided by Tims Ford State Park in recognition of National Arbor Day. They planted red oaks, white oaks, redbuds and pine tree saplings.

Cub Master Crystal Sons said the scouts are very proud of their many accomplishments over the past year, especially in light of the restrictions imposed by COVID-19.

In addition to planting trees, other ventures completed over the past year include: cleaning up Taylor Creek Greenway, taking a fishing trip, camping at Arrow Head Campground and hiking three miles within the primitive area of the greenway.

Sons said Cub Scout Pack #391 welcomes anyone wanting to take part in scouting.

“We go on adventures and participate in activities with your pack and family,” she said. “But that’s not all — Cub Scouts participate in their community, learn how to be the best they can be and follow their belief in God and country. If you have a child who is currently enrolled in kindergarten through fifth grade and would like to learn more about Cub Scouts, feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. We would love to have you as a member of the pack.”

Meeting are held at the Estill Springs Methodist Church, 200 Eastbrook Road, Estill Springs.
