Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has identified Environmental Stewardship as one of the five pillars of Scouting. Scouting has many programs designed to be used across the all parts of the organization. These programs and activities serve to promote awareness and understanding of conservation and wise and intelligent ways to manage our natural resources.
Scouting has a long tradition of helping the environment and providing education. From Leave No Trace and merit badges such as Environmental Science, Soil & Water, Camping, and Backpacking, to awards like the Hornaday and World Conservation Award, Scouting strives to teach and further environmental education and conservation across the entire program. Countless service hours have been given by BSA members in efforts to do everything from roadside clean-ups, to recycling projects, tree plantings, and park construction.
