World Conservation Award
The World Conservation Award provides an opportunity for individual Wolf Scouts, Bear Scouts, Webelos Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Sea Scouts, and Venturers to “think globally” and “act locally” to conserve and improve our environment. This program is designed to make youth members aware that all nations are closely related through natural resources, and that we and our world environment are interdependent.
Requirements for this award must be completed in addition to any similar requirements completed for rank.
Boy Scouts can earn this award earning the following merit badges:
We designed the 2018 merit badge schedule to allow interested Scouts to earn the World Conservation Award. Fish and Wildlife Management is available session 1. Soil & Water Conservation is available session 4. Environmental Science is offered four times during sessions 1 & 2, 2 & 3, 4 & 5, and 5 & 6. Citizenship in the World is available during sessions 2 & 3 and 4 & 5. Scouts may register for the conservation project during session 6.
Scouts do not have to complete all requirements at summer camp.
We will have applications and award patches available at camp this summer.
