MARTIN COUNTY -- On March 9, the Bear Den from Palm City Cub Scout Pack No. 822 joined with John Wakeman and several high school students from The Earth Savers Crew.

Their goal was to construct a new habitat for box turtles at the Martin County Environmental Studies Center.

The third-grade scouts, along with their siblings, enjoyed a Saturday of work to give back to their community and the center, which is a hands-on learning facility that all the students in Martin County visit.

These Cub Scouts put into practice some of the purposes of Cub Scouting: character development, good citizenship and friendly service.

They also worked towards their Bear rank requirement of "Sharing Your World with Wildlife."

Now the box turtles have a larger, more shaded habitat to enjoy.
