Pack 104 scouts met by Cerrito Vista Park at 11 am by the Cerrito Vista Park upper picnic area, off of Avis Drive for Pack 104’s annual Earth Day service project! Thank you to the city of El Cerrito for supplying us with grabbers and garbage bags!! There was a great turn out, as always. We collected over 6 large bags of trash!
Pack 104 Scouts joined East Bay Trail Trekkers and the El Cerrito Green Team to help clean and rejuvenate the Baxter Creek Gateway Park on the morning of December 5, 2021. Here are some photos taken that day.
Scouting for Food is an annual food-collection drive, and one of the many service projects the BSA has conducted since 1910.
870,000 Bay Area residents and a quarter million residents in our council geography lack adequate access to food. Scouts can help make an impact by participating in the annual Scouting for food drive
The annual effort for Scouting in the Bay Area is coordinated in November.
Help us collect canned goods and other non-perishable food for the needy! We’ll be passing out flyers on Saturday, November 6 and picking up donations the following Saturday, November 13.
On Saturday, October 16th, Cubs from Pack 104 descended on several local school sites to clean up litter and other debris around the entranceways, parking lots, and street fronts.
In addition to visiting Harding Elementary School Fairmont Elementary School Madera Elementary School and Mira Vista Elementary School, they also managed to stop by and clean up around the El Cerrito Library and part of Upper Canyon Trail park.
Over the course of the morning, 31 volunteers from the Pack put in more than 60 hours of service.
Three cheers for the hardworking Scouts of Pack 104! Makes me a proud mom and happy to continue to be a part of this dynamic and helpful community-based group. #teamwork #serving #community #cleanup #localschools #pack104
On Sunday, August 15, 2021, Pack 104 scouts and families convened at 9 am at Camp Herms for our annual Camp Herms Clean Up service project.

Big thanks to all the people who came out and to RJ, Ranger Sean, and Starla for coordinating the event details, volunteers and staff, food, tools, and other logistics.

On Jun 6, 2021, Pack 104 met up with the Green Teams of El Cerrito and the El Cerrito Trail Trekkers to remove litter from Baxter Creek. The organizers from the city remarked that they had never seen such a huge turnout for one of these events – 41 participants from Pack 104!
With a such a large group, the pack made short work of the trash along the creek/greenway and got quite a bit accomplished on the weeds as well.
Based on our discussions with the city, they would like to partner up with the pack on projects like this at least a few times a year, and for future events they will try to also include some sort of educational component as part of the event!!
This is yet another very successful collaborative event and we’re excited have the opportunity to contribute and make positive impacts on the environment and the local community.
If you and your family are not currently part of our pack, please consider joining us for the next community project!
