Wolf Achievement 7 – Your Living World – focuses on conservation. For some more ideas for fun ways to introduce this topic (including a fun snack idea and some books for kids about conservation), see my Wolf Achievement 7 page.
When I did this with ZD’s den, the favorite part by far was going outside to pick up trash. We did this on the field at our chartered organization, so they really had to hunt for it. They had fun yelling “Look what I found!” every time a new little bit of trash was discovered.
