DALLAS — The Boy Scouts of America announced a summer forest conservation effort Tuesday that will mark its largest national service project since World War II.

About 5,000 Scouts will take part in projects such as ecosystem restoration and trail construction at national forest sites in Missouri, Utah, Virginia, California and Wyoming.

The Irving, Texas-based Scouts will begin the five-week project in June.
