There they followed a trail that, in 1873, was the perime- ter of a natural fortress used by a band of 51 Modoc Indians and their families to hold off the advance of over 600 sol- diers for several months. From this location they were able to view the areas known as the Devils Homestead, Gillem's Camp and Fleener Chimneys. Another short ride later and it was time to go caving, which was a nice escape from the then hot sun. Merrill, Mushpot and Skull caves are all excellent loca- tions to start exploring. They average about 600- 700 feet long and have a wide vari- ety of formations to see. What a great way to work up an appetite! With everyone back at the campsite and plenty of day- light left, the scouts were able to cook up a gourmet meal of foot long chilidogs, grilled not boiled, and fruit and granola bars for dessert. After breakfast and break- ing down the campsite the scouts were ready to do more caving the next day. Valentine, Golden Dome Thunderbolt, and Sunshine were all interesting and ranged from 500 to 2,560-feet in length. The last cave complex was the Hercules/Juniper and was a great way to finish up an underground experience. This complex is actually made up of two caves with ends that connect. ., Visitors go in one entrance and come out the other: The Boy Scout Troop 36 members Austin Tatum, Wesley Hedrick, Alex Hartline and T.J. Eidhammer, pictured with adult volun- teer Nikole Melo, enjoy a break at the Klamath Basin Wildlife Center, where they identified several species of wildlife, water fowl and other Fving things.

The scouts id it was the hardest, but also the most fun. After a last tiqp back to camp for a grilled ham and cheese sandwich lunch and a final check of the area to make sure the site was cleaner than when we arrived we were on our way to our last stop, Glass Mountain. Scouts always try to be pre- pared, but a big tree across the road would just taken too long to remove with just their scout knives. A scenic drive back on Highways 139 and 36, with even more wildlife to see, brought the troop back to Chester with memories of another exching adventure. Cub Scouts is a program for boys aged 7 - 10, and Boy Scouts is for boys 11 - 18. Members of Boy Scout Troop 36 try to schedule an outdoor event each month along with weekly meetings for organization and rank advancement. The scouts are always look- ing for youth and adults that would like to be part of the scouting eperience and-help their communities. Those interested in more information about the scout- ing experience are encour- aged to contact Gregg Scott at 258-3212., ,, Spring is here for Boy Scout Troop 36 of Chester, and they have been taking advantage of the opportunity to be out- doors. Troop members got off to great start by participating in the Lassen District Spring Camporee at George Young Rotary Park, in Westwood, April 23 - 25. There the scouts honed their skills with the global positioning system (GPS) by completing a course requiring knowledge of scouting history at the different GPS locations. Along with various "rank advancement" activities, the scouts also competed in a Frisbee Golf Tournament; lis- tened to a presentation about wildlife identification and tracking by Game Warden Carol Growdon; and they com- pleted a merit badge class on American Heritage. That full weekend was fol- lowed by another in mid May, when the boys Lava Beds National Monument in Modoc County They began with a visit to the Tule Lake Migrator Bird Festival at the Klamath Basin Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, where they learned about and got up close and personal with owls and hawks. There were also several other waterfowl present at the refuge. During this trip the scouts were able to identify thirteen species of mammals and more than 40 species of birds. A short drive away, the scouts arrived at a location Gregg Scott [ Special to Feather Publishing i. $00uden00.s hello rep1, An00e|ope L.aEe Greenville High School park- ing, where students were eagerly looking forward to helping the Forest Service replant the area destroyed by the 2007 fire at Antelope Lake. Curtis Yocum, and Cathy Powers of the Forest Service, and Jonathan Kusel, Emily Creely, and Emily Mogahaddas of the Sierra Institute Center of Forestry met students and teachers on site at 9:30 a.m. When students piled out of the bus, they were also met by free-lance journalist Jane Braxton-Little, who is very interested in the Greenville High School Natural Resources Program. Kusel and Powers explained to students how important the planting is to the area, and Yocum demon- strated the technique of planting the yearling trees, and he expla.ined what kind of conifers were being planted. These trees were Incense Cedar, Douglas Fir and Sugar Pine. The planting process involved planting the trees in clusters of three in 25-foot sections. Within each section the three trees were planted in specific degrees to form a tri- angle for each tree to have room to grow. Each tree was planted to the approximant depth of six inches or until the soil level was at the middle of each trunk; then the soil was light- ly packed around the trees. The students planted trees for four hours and were able to plant up to five hundred trees. There were still more trees to plant, so most of the stu- dents at the end of the day volunteered to help plant the rest of the trees on Memorial Day weekend.
