ROCK SPRINGS – By now, residents and travelers of Rock Springs and Green River are familiar with the silhouettes of cows seen all around town during the summer.
The cows became a part of the Boys Scout Troop 4’s fundraising efforts several years ago, and the tradition continues into 2021. The troop, established in 1938, cuts up the coins for the cows which the companies then decorate. to match their brand.
Yesterday the troop began their campaign by placing the first cows at the Rock Springs Chamber of Commerce. They will continue to deposit and install cows in shops in the region for all those who wish to participate in the local tradition.

But last year, the troop went above and beyond to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world.
The #CrushCorona movement began when the pandemic was in its infancy. The troop has offered to set up the cows at no cost and will continue to practice this summer in an effort to show their appreciation for the businesses in Rock Springs and Green River.
Companies are always welcome to sponsor a cow this summer, with proceeds going to help Scout members planning to attend the High Adventure Sea Base Camp later this year.
Cows will start appearing around Rock Springs and Green River this week, and if a business is interested in sponsoring a cow, any donation will be appreciated.
