Scouts double their service

Boy Scouts from Del Mar Troop 713 joined forces with the Del Mar Rotary and I Love A Clean San Diego on April 24 to assist with two service projects in Del Mar.

At the San Dieguito River Park, Scouts and Rotarians worked together to construct planting tables that will be placed inside the strawberry stand/now nursery, so the park rangers have a place to grow native vegetation.

The new vegetation will be replanted along the banks of the river once non-native plants are removed. To the west, additional Troop 713 Scouts participated in the beach and street clean up sponsored by I Love A Clean San Diego.

Ramsey Keilani won an award for finding the most unusual trash item (a heavy, rusty metal sign post).

With fewer than 50 cigarette butts found by the Scouts (primarily from the alleys), the boys decided the smoking ban appears to be keeping the beaches cleaner and safer for sea life.

Del Mar Troop 713 has been a part of Del Mar since 1917 and is a high adventure troop with more than 80 Scouts and 32 adult assistant Scoutmasters.
