In preparation for the arrival of over 30,000 Scouts and Venturers at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree, the search and rescue teams conducted drills to assure their abilities to find participants, staff members or visitors lost in the Summit Bechtel Reserve's expansive wilderness. Those teams work in conjunction with the jamboree's fire service, EMS and security department, as well as with the National Guard.
New and more finely detailed recreational trail maps for the Bechtel Summit Reserve are being posted around the site. Here, Rob Seiter, program manager for TrinityWorks and maintenance volunteer, staples laminated maps to a signboard in Base Camp D. Information booths at Summit Center are also receiving the updated maps. Photo by Axel Anderson.
