A Scout is Thrifty:  Troop 500 recently trekked to the Colorado River where we enjoyed canoeing, hiking, and camping under the stars. The scouts and adult leaders learned about the river’s unique ecosystems while having a great time.


Water from the Colorado River impacts our lives daily in Southern California. During this time of drought please be thrifty in your water usage and consider ways you can reduce your family’s water usage:  take shorter showers and follow city regulations on lawn watering and car washing. Even pouring the last of your glass of drinking water on a thirsty plant can help.
