Boy Scouts Volunteer on the Amargosa River

These 6 young men and their troop leaders came from St. George, Utah, to Beatty, Nevada, to explore, learn about, and help the Amargosa River

Their first project was to help me make the entrance area of Torrance Ranch look nicer by spreading out two huge piles of wood-chips that I’d saved for them.

We helped them arrange tent camping at Spicer Ranch. That night, they helped Amargosa Toads by eradicating bullfrogs at TNC’s Stagecoach in river property.

The next morning, their project was planting willows along the Torrance Ranch boardwalk. The senior scouts from St. George, Utah worked hard for nature on their second day in a row.
