Event Description:

Come out and help your Troop and the Washington community with a highway cleanup effort for the stretch of Highway 24 we have adopted. Meet at Crossroads by the Troop Trailer and we will walk highway 24 to Nofsinger road and back. (A good hike as well!) We will pick up trash and treasures as we go. This is also a great way to earn service hours for your next rank advancement.

This is a recurring event for Troop 163 and we plan to do this 4 times a year. Please watch this safety video before you attend the pickup event.

Sign up by the day before the event - family members are welcome. (We have a limit of 15 participants for each pickup)
