Oanow.com: TUSKEGEE NATIONAL FOREST - Restoration Phase One and Phase Two got a jump start Thursday morning as about 20 young people and adults cleared and piled up bush high over their heads next to the Pleasant Hill Fire Tower at the Taska Recreation Area.
Those clearing the brush came from Montgomery to help Andrew Sumner earn his Venturing Gold Award Project.
Sumner said clearing the brush around the archeological site is one of two projects he needs to earn his Venturing Gold Award, which is part of Venturing, a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women.
On hand to help was a 10-member Crew 924 from his charter organization, Eastwood Presbyterian Church, as well as members of Boy Scout Troop 924 and Cub Scout Pack 924.
