Cub Scouts Serve Zoo, Get Animal Close Up

Have you ever wondered how all those animals at the Zoo are kept safely in their enclosures? Well, the answer might not be Cub Scouts, but Pack 49 from Gulf Shores, Alabama still performed a valuable and safety-oriented service project at their local Zoo.

We learned about this service project idea from awesome Scout Mom, Brittney Reeves on Instagram who posted this great service project idea her son’s Pack did at their local zoo. She sent us this little write up with more details in case you and your Pack or Den want to try and do something similar at a Zoo near you. So fun!

GULF SHORES, ALABAMA – Cub Scout Pack 49 in Gulf Shores, Alabama recently took park in a community service project at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. These boys in grades first through fifth reset nails throughout the zoo on boardwalks, fences, stages, and picnic tables. They greatly enjoyed giving back to the zoo!

Cub Scout Pack 49 is led by Cub Master Todd Madden.  They have dens for boys in first grade through fifth grade. The pack works to complete community service throughout the year while learning valuable life skills.
