Protecting the Future Today

As Scouts and Scouters, we have unique opportunities to see the majesty of the outdoors. Hikes in state and national parks let us appreciate green space near our homes, and we feel it more keenly than most when pristine areas are degraded. As Scouts and Scouters, we also have a responsibility to care for natural resources so that other people—both today and in future decades—may enjoy them as well.

Our stewardship responsibility doesn’t end when we come home from outings. By living more sustainably, and teaching others to do the same, we can leave our planet a little better than we found it. Living sustainably can mean recycling paper and soda cans. It can mean being more discerning consumers. And it can mean getting involved in issues like conservation and climate change. You’ll get to do those things and more in this month’s activities.
