Ssouts Nathan Klaff and Bryce Groess both members of El Dorado Hills Boy Scout Troop 465 organized a conservation effort benefiting Yosemite National Park last month.

Along with other members of Troop 465 Nathan and Bryce, who  are in the process of earning the highly prized Boy Scout Hornaday Award, participated in a conservation effort removing invasive species in the valley floor of Yosemite National Park.

Only 1,100 Boy Scouts Hornaday Awards have been given out to Boy Scouts in the past 80 years.  The award was named after Dr. William T. Hornaday, director of the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. Hornaday was an active and outspoken champion of natural resources conservation and a leader in saving the American bison from extinction. Scouts pursuing the Hornaday award must demonstrate a substantial commitment of time and energy by earning five additional merit badges focused on environmental topics, as well as plan, lead and carry out at least one service project benefiting the environment.

Both Scouts said  felt that working on a service project in Yosemite National Park was a great way for them to give back to a beautiful area they enjoy visiting.
