Nature and Ecology

; summer camp

The Ecology and Conservation area helps to promote a Scout’s knowledge and understanding of the natural environment around him.  Scouting has always been committed to the “green” initiatives which are so critical to our communities and nation.

In the Ecology program, Scouts get to study natural habitats, climate, and the effects of human activity on wildlife and natural resources.  Through hands-on experimentation and analysis participants gain a greater appreciation for the world around them.  In addition, the Ecology merit badge program exposes Scouts to numerous opportunities for career exploration in the field of conservation and the natural sciences.
