Venturers working on the World Conservation Award learn to “think globally” and “act locally” while exploring the impact of humans on the environment. To earn this award, Venturers must complete the Ecology elective for the Ranger award, learn more about how events and conditions impact the environment, and teach others about the inter-connectivity between humans and the natural world.
Venturing World Conservation Award
To earn complete the Ecology elective for the Venturing Ranger award, Venturers must learn about natural systems and study the environment. Then they must teach others about what they learned.
The International Spirit Award recognizes Scouts who learn more about Scouting around the world. By doing the requirements for this award, Venturers learn to appreciate different cultures.
To earn the Conservation core requirement for the Venturing Ranger award, Venturers must carry out a conservation project. Then they must encourage others to get involved in conservation.
In addition to the core Venturing awards and the Venturing specialty awards, Venturers can earn other recognitions, including
Venturing Nova and Supernova Awards,
Emergency Preparedness BSA Award, and
Venturing World Conservation Award.
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.
