Nature Visitors
Sam Huston Area Council

Cub Scout 1: We enjoy being outdoors but always need to remember those who follow us.

Cub Scout 2: Try to be a good visitor and leave the plants and creatures for others to enjoy.

Cub Scout 3: The only things I took home with me were drawings, photographs, and memories.

Cub Scout 4: I walked on pathways to protect the plants and soil.

Cub Scout 5: When I see animals, I remember that I am a guest in their home.

Cub Scout 6: I always make sure that all campfires are completely out.

Cub Scout 7: When we are careful like this, we’ll be able to leave these things for others to enjoy in the years to come.
