Outdoor Housekeeping

Some of you are working on the Environment skill award or Environmental Science merit badge. You're learning how everything in nature is connected in some way to everything else. some scientists call it the web of nature. Every strand has connections with other strands. Even rocks, for example, are part of that web because as they slowly disintegrate over hundreds of years they help to form the soil we depend on for food.

You're also finding out that if we pollute or destroy some strand in the web of life, it has effects on other strands. that's why it's so important that we understand what we are doing to nature and why as Scouts we sometimes do conservation projects to help our environment.

What I'm leading up to is a reminder that, especially when we are camping or hiking, we follow Scouting's Outdoor Code in all we do. If we obey that Code, we are not going to damage any strands in the web of life.

Please join me in the Outdoor Code. (Lead Outdoor Code, page 54, Official Boy Scout Handbook, by repeat after me method)
