It’s been a busy fall for 1st Dundas Scouts.
Last spring, the Scouts entered Hinterland Who’s Who 50th Anniversary Video Contest and earned first prize in the group category with a submission on the Jefferson salamander.
As a reward, the troop won a visit from Speaking of Wildlife, featuring Jody Gienow, and Laura Gallagher. The event was well attended by Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts and parents. The animal guests included a baby snapping turtle, fully grown snapping turtle Sam, Blossom, a possum, Luna, a saw-whet owl and Petunia, a skunk.
The Scouts also participated in a 1st Dundas group camp at Camp Nemo and returned to Algonquin Park to enhance their canoeing, portaging and interior camping skills.
More adventures are still to come. Camps are planned for November, December and into 2014.
