In the Shadi Display area (7501 Moeser Ln, El Cerrito, CA 94530), we will be working on three separate tasks: The viewing platform, the night sky, and the fence. This project will primarily require digging, as well as carrying heavy objects and working with basic tools. It will be a lot of fun and a small breakfast and lunch will be provided.

On April 29th to May 1st, our troop attended Camporee 2022 at Lake Berryessa!
We merged the Hawks and Ravens patrol and competed in a bunch of activities like first aid, orienteering, obstacle course, and monkey bridge.
For the cord on blue cooking competition, we submitted grilled cheese and hot dogs! Admittedly, we didn’t prepare a lot for it, but there’s always next year.
We also saw a few rattlesnakes around our campground…

Philmont shakedown (training); preparing for July’s Philmont High Adventure.
Sunday on April 17th, we went on a 15 mile hike along Wildcat Canyon Trail!
We started off meeting at the trailhead parking lot and hiked 15 miles through various loops. After 5 miles, scouters doing the 10 mile hike turned back at a loop point.
We eventually made it to Inspiration point where we had our lunch, and then continued off a different trail to take a look at Lake Anza. It was covered with a fern at this time of year, and we were all surprised when we saw it. It looked like a flat meadow!
After that, we looped back and got to Little Farm, and hiked past Jewel Lake all the way back to our cars. Our legs were a bit sore, but we now have a (another, in same cases) 15 mile hike under our belts!

We had a nice productive day, yesterday, at Lake Berryessa for the Camporee Service Project!
Our troop did trail maintenance on the nature trail at the visitor center.
We had to first weed and fully remove debris off the trail. Then distribute and smooth out a layer of decomposed granite for a new, safer, and aesthetically pleasing trail.
