Please note the following updates for this event:
From Richard Ricco, District Commissioner:
While this is a worthwhile conservation project, it will qualify as advancement-related credit for all Scouts.
Leaders should be advised to check:
Cub Scouts can complete Wolf Badge requirement #7 (“your living world”); Bear Badge requirements 5c & d (“sharing your world with wildlife”), 6g (“take care of your planet”). Alex Zablocki, event organizer says, “Cubs should attend and they will be guided throughout the morning on what to do and why the project is being done”.
Boy Scouts can complete 2nd class requirement #5 (“Participate in an approved, minimum of one hour, service project”), or credit toward 1st class requirements 3 & 6. Also camping merit badge requirement 9c (“Perform a conservation project approved by the landowner or land managing agency”).
