Evergreen Boy Scout Roundtable
Oregon Trail Council, Eugene, OR.
Equipment; flashlights, fan, American Flag, and
cards or 7 small pieces of cardboard.
On each of the 6, the letters, N,A,T,U,R,E and on
the last, GIVE A HOOT, DO NOT POLLUTE!
If you have access to music, preferable; Lee
Greenwood's God Bless the USA, John Wayne's America, why I Love Her
or ...... I am not sure of the artist at the moment, but the album
was Americana and the song was backroads. If these are not
available, then any music that sings either America the Beautiful or
God Bless America.
Setting: Lights off, some boys sitting around or by
the American Flag with flashlights on.
The fan is on and pointing up at the flag to create
motion. (just like a breeze would move the flag). Background music
can be any of the ones I mentioned. Also a spotlight or large
flashlight. Start the song, turn on the fan and flashlights and
listen to the music. When the song is over, turn on some backlights,
and have Cub Scouts come out, one at a time, with each of the cards
and hold up the card. Start with N and go though all until NATURE IS
spelled. Put the spot light on each when they come out. After all
are in front of the pack then bring out DO NOT POLLUTE and all of he
boys say in unison, GIVE A HOOT, DO NOT POLLUTE! A variation of this
would be for each of the boys to say something with each letter. N =
Nature, it is all around us. A = America is full of nature. T = Time
for all of us to take care of our environment. U = You are the only
ones that can keep our environment clean. R = Are ure ready to help?
E = Environment, it is all around us. Or something like

CM: What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in
the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is
the little shadow, which runs across the grass and loses itself in
the sunset. We need to continue through the Scouting movement, to
teach respect for the Earth, each other and the simple things in
