When working on conservation requirements, I like to use stories about youth who are participating in conservation projects. I think it makes it more interesting to the Scouts if they see that young people can make a difference.
You can find a few stories about youth and their conservation projects in an article at Earth911.com. So check them out and see if they would be helpful while working on conservation requirements. Also take a look at these resources suggested by readers in the comments: My Hero Stories: Earthkeepers and Earth Day: Meet 3 Kid Crusaders.
Who knows, one of them might be inspired to start their own conservation project.
Do you have a favorite conservation project which your Scout unit or family has participated in? Add it to the comments below.
