WICHITA FALLS, TEXAS–With the focus on the possible loss of property held for generations of ranchland owners in north Texas, others who might also be affected by the BLM’s Red River Land Grab could be overlooked. During a meeting with Texas State Senator Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls), Breitbart Texas learned that land owned by the Northwest Texas Council of the Boy Scouts of America is also reportedly being targeted by the BLM land management study. Boy Scout Council President, Wayne Mansur, sat down with Breitbart Texas to explain what his organization and the young people he serves are facing.
The Boy Scouts own a 400 acre tract of land along the Red River known as Camp Perkins. Mansur has learned that 170 acres of the land is now included in the BLM’s land management study and could be lost to their use.
“If they took what we call our field area,” Mansur explained, “the lower portion of our camp, it would shut it down.”
“That is our outdoor classroom,” Mansur continued. “That’s where we take young boys to teach them about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).”
