The BSA Distinguished Conservation Service Award recognizes youth who learn about nature and conservation and carry out significant conservation projects. The projects must make a long-term impact.
World Wetlands Day
The Cub Scout World Conservation Award may be earned by Wolves, Bears, or Webelos (including Webelos working on Arrow of Light). They earn the award by working on their rank appropriate conservation and nature adventures. They must also participate in a conservation project.
February 2 is World Wetlands Day every year. This is a day to raise awareness of the importance of preserving wetlands. This day is an opportunity to encourage Scouts to participate in conservation efforts.
Splash! is the Scouts BSA Nova Award for investigating water science. To earn this award, Scouts must complete one of their science related merit badges and learn about related topics such as pollution, health, water cycle, and waste treatment. Scouts also learn how water is processed and consumed.
