DAYTON, Ind. (WLFI)— Boy Scout Troop 316 of Boy Scouts of America spent their weekend cleaning up a public access entrance to Wildcat Creek in Dayton.
The entrance is located just north of Dayton on East State Road 38.
Troop member Jonathan Dice contacted DNR and INDOT for permission.
Dice said many people didn't even know there was an access point and has witnessed many people throwing trash in the area.
He hopes that making the access point cleaner and more visible will not only stray people away from trashing the area, but also make the area known.
"There were people parked here at all times doing just you know what at night and stuff," said Dice. "So it's just now with it more open I'm hoping that it'll stop or at least decrease much more than what it was."
Dice hopes other people will help with the up-keep of the public access.
