"It's really fun actually. I like cutting [Scotch broom] because I know I'm helping the environment."Recently, KGW News joined us in Astoria, Oregon for a Lewis and Clark Elementary School field trip to Coffenbury Lake in Ft. Stevens State Park. Students pulled Scotch broom and paddled on the lake in our Big Canoes. Watch the students in action!
