NRA Archery Range at Thunder Ridge
This new and improved shooting sports area will mean more Scouts can learn about handling firearms and shooting safely. And with a new supply of guns and bows from the NRA, they’ll have great new equipment to do it with.
Eccles Nature Center at Scofield
The new Nature Center at Frandsen Scout Ranch is starting to take shape and camp staff couldn’t be more excited. Thanks to the George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation, nature activities and merit badges will have a permanent home with plenty of learning space and seating for the thousands of Scouts and leaders who come every summer.
This nature center is the second of its kind in the Council. The Maple Dell Eccles Nature Center is in full swing this summer, and has been a great success at making the nature merit badges easier to teach and learn.
Having spent time at the previous Scofield nature area, I’m confident Scouts will be grateful for the shade and seating the new center will offer. And you sure can’t beat the view.
