On Saturday, November 2 Pack 23 will be participating in a Seed Harvest at Fermi Labs to help restore native tallgrass prairies.  The event runs from 10am to 2pm, and lunch is provided by the hosting organization.   We'll meet at Fermi labs at 10 am and stay until the boys get tired -- probably 11:30 or so.   Bring your whole family.  Scouts should wear their uniform shirt, and everyone should wear long pants, shoes (no sandals), and work gloves if you have them.  Also bring hand clippers (for gardening) if you have them and paper bags.

Please check in with Kevin Brubaker once you arrive so that you will get credit for the Leave No Trace requirement and brag vest patch!
