Nature Troop Program Feature

Scouts discover quite a lot about nature in the course of camping and hiking. They learn the properties of various trees, how to predict a coming storm, how to identify common birds, and where to find animal tracks.

The Nature program feature reminds most people of the wilderness. But the natural world is everywhere, even in the heart of a big city. In almost any city park, the troop can find trees, plants, birds, and probably small mammals. So no matter where your troop is
located, you can find nature just outside the meeting place door.

The big event will be a nature adventure. It might be a weekend campout or a one-day outing. Ideally, the site will have a varied ecology – woods, meadows, a pond – because the greatest variety of trees, plants, and wildlife can be found in such a place.
