More than two dozen Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and parent volunteers gathered at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 12 to work in den and patrol groups to help the Escondido Moose Lodge (#1874) clean up brush and complete tree removal. The volunteer clean-up day was in response to the Deer Springs Fire Prevention District’s ongoing abatement program to try to lower the fire danger in the region.
Cub Scout Pack 662 (Lake San Marcos Kiwanis Club) joined the Moose Lodge’s own Pack 640. Also participating were Boy Scout Troop 651 (San Marcos Lion’s Club), Escondido Troop 659, and Troop 760 from the Vista Boys & Girls Club.
More than a ton of greens debris was loaded into two large stake bed trailers and taken to the Escondido recycling yard to be converted into mulch.
