TYBEE ISLAND, GA, March 22, 2012 (Press-News.org) Atlanta's Boy Scouts Troop 18, sponsored by Glenn Memorial UMC on Emory University's campus, visited Little Tybee Island for kayaking and wilderness camping over the President's Day Weekend. Approximately 22 scouts and 8 adult leaders also participated in a Little Tybee Island clean-up as part of the troop's conservation project. The group collected more than 10 large bags of trash and other objects which did not belong on the island.

While celebrants and party-goers were enjoying the 2012 Mardi Gras Tybee Parade on Saturday, February 18, Glenn's Troop 18 scouts were competing to see which patrol could do the best job of leaving the island a little better than they found it.

Christi Lambert, The Nature Conservancy's Southeast Georgia Conservation Director, thanked the scouts for their important contribution. Said Lambert, "The Nature Conservancy in Georgia played a role in protecting Little Tybee Island many years ago, and we are proud to see the young men of Troop 18 enjoying and helping to maintain this incredible natural area."

Troop 18 friend and Tybee City Councilman Tom Groover was also on hand to thank the scouts by presenting them with Tybee lighthouse pins. Said Groover, "This sure was an energetic bunch of boys. On Friday afternoon, Bo and I scouted the island in advance of the larger group coming the following day and it was a shame to see the amount of trash lying around. When they left on Monday morning, the difference was quite noticeable. On behalf of all coastal residents, I thank them for their unselfish efforts."
