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 Wildlife 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.
Use dried gourds to make a birdhouse. If you didn’t grow any yourself, you can probably find some in your area at a farmer’s market or even a craft shop.
Every Scout who is spending time outdoors should be familiar with the Outdoor Code. It is especially important for Webelos, Scouts BSA, and Venturers who are out camping regularly.
Bear Cub Scouts observe wildlife and plants when they work on the Fur, Feathers, and Ferns adventure. They find out about endangered species and gardening.
Conservation and Scouting go hand in hand. Since getting outdoors is a big part of the Cub Scout and Scouts BSA programs, it makes sense that we should teach Scouts about protecting our natural resources.
