The Nature and Environment theme focuses on plants, wildlife, and how we interact with nature. The program feature includes some general information and some more specific ideas for meetings:
Making a soda bottle terrarium is a great springtime activity. Plus – it reuses a plastic soda bottle, which is great for starting a discussion about Earth Day approaching.
Lion Cub Scouts learn about gardening and where food comes from while working on the Ready Set Grow adventure. They also plant their own container garden.
January 5 of every year is National Bird Day. This is day to appreciate our feathered friends. So do some bird watching or learn something about birds. There are several Scouting activities which go well with this day.
Castaway is one of the Webelos/Arrow of Light elective adventures. For the Webelos Castaway adventure, Cub Scouts learn survival skills for situations where shelter, water, and electricity might not be available.
Bear Necessities is one of the Bear required adventures. For this adventure, Bears learn some outdoor skills, go camping, do some cooking, and learn a little about the weather.
