Each year scouts from 4R partner with the Anne Arundel County Parks and Rec and MD Department of Natural Resources to plant trees and shrubs in county parks.  The county provides the plants and trees, holes, and mulch.  We provide the brawn, shovels, rakes, and wheelbarrows.  In a couple of hours Scouts plant hundreds of trees and shrubs.  Bring work gloves and clothes.  Make sure to mark your tools and bring plenty of water!  

Each year about 80 scouts plant over 100 trees or bushes.

Cub Scouts who participate fulfill one of the requirements for the World Conservation Award.
