The East Carolina Council of the Boy Scouts of America received a big donation Monday to fund a new facility.
Potash Corporation announced the more than 250-thousand dollar donation to Camp Boddie.
The money will help pay for a new building at the East Carolina Scout Reservation along the Pamlico River to be named the Potash-Corp Eco Lodge.
The lodge will be a full-service environmental education facility providing youth with hands-on environmental experiences.
It is expected to open in late summer or early fall of 2010.
