The program, called "Cache In, Trash Out," gathers geocaching enthusiasts together to clean up parks, public places, and pretty much anywhere that might be home to a cache.
But even though the national BSA event is tomorrow, your unit can make a positive impact any time of year.
Every little bit helps. So whether you pick up a piece of trash while searching for a cache or coordinate a massive service project with your pack, troop, or crew, you're making a difference.
If you're having trouble coming up with the perfect location for a "Cache In, Trash Out" service project, get in touch with your city's parks and recreation department or a local nonprofit organization. Just remember to obtain permission before collecting trash on private property.
And for those who are new to geocaching, you'll want to start by visiting the BSA's geocaching Web site, which is full of great tools for unit leaders.
