Proceeds from the May steak cookout will be used to provide scholarships to area youth to attend summer camps at Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center near Lanesboro.

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 11th year Austin Chapter has provided scholarships to Eagle Bluff.
