Inviting all scouts and their families to visit the Ardenwood Historic Farm, a working farm with a train & crops grown using historic methods, plus volunteers in period attire. A ton of things to see!!

The month of January has a high probablity for viewing the Monarch Butterflies. Only downfall is that some things are not open (Train, produce stand, Patterson house, may not be much to see in the gardens as well).

Facility opens from 10a to 4p. There is no parking fee. Dogs are not allowed in the Ardenwood Historic Farm. The docents will have a scavenger hunt which is for all ages. The Ardenwood forms will have all the printed forms there. They have picnic tables/benches there, so we can bring our own lunch.

Scouting for Food 2016

Dear Pack,

This year's Scouting for Food is scheduled for the weekend of Nov 12 (hanger distribution) and Nov 19 (collection).

For those new to scouting: this is a wonderful opportunity for our scouts to participate in a community service project. The food that we collect goes to the Contra Costa Food Bank from where it is distributed to those in need. Den leaders are responsible for ensuring their den's participation in this event.

Click on this symbol to see the area assignment for each den.  You can also click on the white rectangle symbol on the far right to view the map in full size:

General Reminders:

  • Wear Class A Scout uniform
  • Drivers should have all scouts in view at all times
  • Scouts are NOT to enter a donor's residence
  • Bring a friend - a great way to introduce what Scouting is about

Hanger Distribution - Nov 14

  • You may distribute door hangers on a different day than Nov 12
  • Door hangers should be placed on the door or partially under the door mat (ensure it's visible and won't blow away)
  • Do not put hangers in mailboxes

Food Pickup - Nov 19

  • Food must be picked up from the same area you distributed door hangers
  • Food pickup is to begin no earlier than 9:00 am
  • Food must be dropped off in front of Coyote Creek MPR between 11 am and noon
  • If you may be late and wish to know if one of the coordinators will still be at Coyote Creek, please call one of these numbers: Abirami 925.487.9769 | Priya 925.478.0894 | Jung 404.512.2703
  • If you will be much later than noon, you can bring your collection to the Meridian District's food collection site at the Danville LDS at 655 Old Orchard Road.  They will be open till 2:30pm.  After 2:30pm, you will have to take your collection to the Contra Costa Food Bank located at 4010 Nelson Avenue in Concord (925.676.7534) during their regular hours.  Please let them know your collection is from the Meridian District's Scouting for food project.

Ideas to help us collect more food on the 19th!

  • Knock on every door that received a door hanger and did not leave a donation. Maybe they forgot to put out their food or would give if asked.
  • Tell your family and friends if they didn't get a door hanger they can still help by dropping off their food at the MPR on Nov 19th between 11am - noon

All participating scouts receive a patch.
