Cub Scouts Learn Campfire Skills

Mattapoisett Land Trust (MLT) welcomed scouts, siblings, and parents from Cub Scout Pack 53 to Dunseith Gardens on Saturday, February 1 for a campfire and winter hike. MLT’s Gary Johnson demonstrated how to build a “log cabin” style campfire with all-natural tinder, kindling, fire logs, and a single match! Once the fire was lit, MLT’s Paul “Ozzie” Osenkowski led a short hike to the small stream at the northeast corner of the property and talked to the scouts about the history of the stream as the source of water for cranberry bogs many years ago on the east side of North Street. Once the fire was ready, the outing concluded with s’mores roasted by the scouts and a rousing game of tag. All in all, it was a great outing, and MLT looks forward to welcoming the scouts back to our properties soon.
