Beavers helping to keep Rossland streets clean

Rossland’s local Beaver group was out last week doing their part to make Rossland cleaner.

The group spent the hour reserved for beaver activities to find various trash and refuse that had piled up under the snow over the winter.

The young beavers made a game of it, running and racing to pick up errant pieces of plastic, paper and cans.

And despite not having the whole crew out they came away with three bags full of garbage and recyclables.

Beaver leader Darcy O’Hearn is hoping to get more kids to join the group, which meets every week on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. at the Rossland Scout Hall.

The hall is located on the far side of Jubilee field behind Rossland Secondary School.

Over the course of the summer they will be doing outdoor activities like hikes and camping trips and could always use more kids and parent volunteers.

O’Hearn said for those who aren’t sure whether their child will like it, they can try out three nights free.

The group currently has 11 members in the Rossland branch.
