ArrowCorps5, the biggest national BSA service project since WWII, wrapped up yesterday with the last of the five locations closing in the Bridger-Teton forest.
About 5000 Order of the Arrow members participated in conservation projects across the country at five separate locations. Every participant receives a way cool Service Team Member Emblem which is a temporary patch to be displayed centered on the right uniform pocket. Participants that complete their service will also receive a Service Shield.
See ArrowCorps5 News page for articles about the projects.
There is a Photo and Video contest going on as an effort to create a digital archive of the projects. I'm looking forward to seeing what gets entered.
From all reports I've seen, ArrowCorp5 has been a great success with many miles of trail being created or improved and many other projects being completed. The only hiccup I've heard of involved the Dutch Joe area in the Bridger-Teton project. Another group moved into the area, causing the ArrowCorps5 planners to select a different location for that part of their project. From what I've read, the BSA folks handled the potential conflict very well, keeping the experience of the scouts and goals of service in the forefront.
