<img src=’images/ac5marktwain.jpg’ width=133 height=145 align=right>Tomorrow marks the completion of the first

of five week-long service projects held at several

national forests this summer. All together, work at

these five sites comprise ArrowCorps5 (pronounced Arrow

Corps Five), the Order of the Arrow’s largest service

project since World War II. With only hours remaining at

the site in the Mark Twain National Forest, Missouri,

Arrowmen finish up a week of conservation work, removing

invasive Red cedar from glade regions and restoring up

to 150 acres of native grass areas.

Arrowmen will be participating in similar conservation

work in the forests at Manti-La Sal, Utah June 14-21;

George Washington-Jefferson, Virginia June 21-28;

Shasta-Trinity, California July 12-19; and Bridger-

Teton, Wyoming July 26-August 2. By the end of the

summer, volunteers will have contributed an estimated

250,000 man-hours to the conservation of our nation’s


Photos from the Mark Twain, Missouri site are now
