AUSTIN -- A few Boy Scout Troops decided to take the litter from Christmas tree decorations on Loop 360 into their own hands.
This Sunday afternoon Boy Scout Troops 30, 70, and 990 donned safety vests and got to work.
Troop members picked up items like tinsel and discarded ornaments from the grass. They also used climbing gear to reach decorated trees high on rock walls along the roadway. Scout leaders stood by for safety.
This service project is their way of giving back and protecting local wildlife.
