In addition to the core Venturing awards (Venturing, Discovery, Pathfinder, Summit) and the Venturing specialty awards (Ranger, Quest, TRUST), Venturers can earn a number of other recognitions.
Venturing World Conservation Award
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.
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.
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.
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.
