Laura Sturza Burbank Cub Scout Pack 225 members showed their respect for nature by gathering trash in Wildwood Canyon as part of the city's Earth Day activities. "The boys were really savvy," Cubmaster John Dlugolecki said. "They were separating the recyclables." The group hikes in the canyon, and Dlugolecki said he wants the boys "to learn to leave places cleaner than when they first got there." Another 40 volunteers tidied the trails at the Stough Canyon Nature Center as part of events Saturday that included a hike and displays of reptiles and frogs native to the area.
