The Ini-To Lodge of the Order of the Arrow established for 2010 a long range goal of providing continuing service to the Flint River Council and the Council Camps.  The Lodge would lead volunteers to build hiking trails on the Pine Mountain Backcountry (PMBC) property.   This initial vision was expanded based on input from Scouters and staff to "Create a sustainable outdoor recreation environment in the Pine Mountain Backcountry for Flint River Council high adventure programs through strategic planning and action."T


The Ini-To Lodge received a matching 2011 National OA Service Project Grant  to support building several low impact campsites and continue to improve access.  You can read our final report and download to view a video presentation of our year of service [29MB Windows Media Video].
