Who cleans up after the Fourth of July fireworks? In Bend, it’s Boy Scouts, doing another “good turn” for their community.
Led by scouting’s honor and service society, Order of the Arrow, area Boy Scouts will meet at 9:00 a.m. July 5th, in the east parking lot of Pilot Butte State Park and ascend the Central Oregon landmark. They will then “clean” their way down the hill.
Scouts will receive safety instruction from fireworks experts, then comb the butte from top to bottom, picking up debris, litter, and identifying unexploded fireworks for professionals to disarm. A barbecue will follow, at the foot of Pilot Butte.
