Proceeds from the April steak cookout will be used to provide scholarships for area youth to attend summer camps at Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center near Lanesboro, Minn. Eagle Bluff summer camps give students the opportunity to learn about nature and develop outdoor skills such as canoeing, fishing, and camping. This is the sixth year that Austin Chapter 10 has provided scholarships to Eagle Bluff.
