While attending the National Order of the Arrow Conference at Indiana University, several Boy Scouts and their counselors volunteered at the IU Research & Teaching Preserve as a part of their "Operation Service" on Sunday and Monday, August 2 and 3, 2009. Under the guidance of preserve staff, 16 scouts removed debris from around the field lab at Griffy Woods while 49 others maintained the trail at Moores Creek and removed debris from the ravine. The well-organized scouts formed a trash removal assembly line up the side of the steep ravine at Moores Creek. The group hauled out 40 tires, a refrigerator, a dryer, large car parts, and even the kitchen sink!
