Some Scouts might ask “Why do we want to save a spider?” I have to admit. Spiders creep me out. Too many legs! But they are very beneficial. For example, they eat insects, including those pesky mosquitoes which drive us crazy at camp. This is a good opportunity to educate Scouts about ecosystems and how all parts of the natural world depend on each other.
Here are a web of ideas for this day:
- Make some Edible Spiders
- Webelos can work on their Into the Wild adventure
- Cub Scouts can start the Nova WILD! Nature and Wildlife Science award
- Scouts BSA can explore the Environmental Science merit badge or the Nature merit badge
