Our council has a very active Land Management committee that has been working to make sure the 1,600 acres at Salmen Scout Reservation are managed and preserved to insure our Scouts and their families always have a place to go and call their camping home. 

Vice-President of Properties:  Ricky Burke

In 2013 another timber cut is being planned for some acreage on the back of camp.  Below is a map of where the timber cut will take place and some FAQ's about the cut.  If you have questions, please email Ricky Burke (their email addresses are linked above)
