He worked to earn the distinction through a joint effort among the National Forestry Service, The Elks Association and Boy Scouts of America.

“Bronson took charge of the project, coordinated the efforts and was able to secure donations from Toms BBQ to feed all the scouts. Ace Hardware, Frontier Ace Hardware and Home Depot donated water, safety glasses and work gloves,” according to a release.

The project had 25 volunteers working on the national forest land, restoring 3 acres of grassland for the elk that call the area home.

The Apache Junction Independent is mailed each month to 35,000 homes.
