Ecology & Conservation
From its beginnings, the Boy Scouts of America had a strong foundation of woodcraft, nature study, and conservation. Many activities in Scouting come from activities of Native Americans. Many of the principles that Scouts uphold come from the conservation ethics of early founders, in particular Ernest Thompson Seton and Daniel Carter Beard. The BSA has taught more than 110 million young environmentalists throughout its history. Currently, with nearly 5 million members, the BSA continues to train the youth of America in principles of conservation and environmental science.
