Taking Care of Our Home

Few Americans spend more time in the outdoors than Scouts. Whenever you camp, hike, or go boating, you are surrounded by nature. If you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of a bald eagle soaring high overhead or a days-old fawn skittering through the trees. But even if the rarest creature you see is a squirrel, you’ll still enjoy the whisper of the wind through the trees and the endless array of colors and scents all around you.

This month’s activities will help you learn more about the outdoors. You will learn about birds, animals, plants, and other living things—and you’ll discover your responsibility to care for the planet we all share. When you have tried these activities, you will want to learn more, experience more, and care more for the natural world, until you feel truly at home in outdoor environments.
