Scouts from Pack 426 out of Ohioville, PA, Raccoon Park Staff and PFBC built porcupine cribs and placed them in Raccoon Lake last week.  This design should provide protection for juvenile fish and improve recruitment of panfish and gamefish in impoundments that lack abundant, deep-water, submerged aquatic vegetation.  Way to go Scouts!
