SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY


CUB SCOUT WORLD CONSERVATION AWARD

www.uscouts.org

What else could I possibly feature wit a theme like Cubservation??  CD

The World Conservation Award is worn on the uniform shirt, centered on the right pocket as a TEMPORARY patch.  Only ONE Temporary patch may be worn at a time, but Cub or Webelos Scouts may wear the Progress Through Ranks (Immediate Recognition) or Webelos Compass Points Emblem suspended from the right pocket button in addition to any temporary patch sewn on the pocket.

The World Conservation Award provides an opportunity for individual Cub Scouts (or Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers) to "think globally" and "act locally" to preserve and improve our environment. This program is designed to make youth members aware that all nations are closely related through natural resources and that we are interdependent with our world environment.

The Cub Scout version of the World Conservation Award can be earned by Wolf or Bear Cub Scouts, and by Webelos Scouts.

This award can be earned only once while you are in Cub Scouting (i.e. as either a Wolf Cub Scout, a Bear Cub Scout, or as a Webelos Scout).

As a Wolf Cub Scout, you can earn the Cub Scout World Conservation Award by doing the following:

Complete achievement #7 - Your Living World

Complete all Arrow Points in 2 of the following 3 Electives:

#13 - Birds

#15 - Grow Something

#19 - Fishing

Participate in a den or pack conservation project in addition to the above

As a Bear Cub Scout, you can earn the Cub Scout World Conservation Award by doing the following:

Complete achievement #5 - SHARING YOUR WORLD WITH WILDLIFE

Complete all requirements in 2 of the following 3 electives:

#2 - Weather

#12 - Nature Crafts

#15 - Water and Soil Conservation

Participate in a den or pack conservation project in addition to the above

As a Webelos Scout, you can earn the Cub Scout World Conservation Award by doing the following:

Earn the Forester activity badge.

Earn the Naturalist activity badge.

Earn the Outdoorsman activity badge.

Participate in a den or pack conservation project.

See Den and Pack activities sections for ideas for Conservation Projects.

I found out in preparing this issue of Baloo my council has a Conservation Award available for all three levels of Scouts.  I am going to include the requirements for it in my RT edition of Baloo.  CD

Maybe your council has an award, too!  Check it out.
