Vermont conservation camps seek cleanup volunteers
MONTPELIER (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking volunteers to help prepare two Green Mountain Conservation Camp locations for the summer.
A work weekend is planned at Kehoe Camp on Lake Bomoseen in Castleton on Saturday and Sunday.
Wok to the Buck Lake site in Woodbury takes place next weekend, May 24-25.
The Fish and Wildlife Department says the weekends are a community service opportunity for scout groups as well as high school and college clubs.
The camps are looking for help with general repairs, construction, landscaping, painting, plumbing, cooking, firewood, electrical work and gardening. Participants are encouraged to bring their own tools, but the camps will have some available.
Volunteers can participate for as long as they want - an hour, a day, or both days.
