Forestry Merit Badge and Conservation Challenge

Scouters: Your scouts have a great opportunity to complete all but requirement #5 of the Forestry Merit Badge. They can also take the conservation challenge and receive a cool patch.

Check it out at the conservation trail, which is in the shade just below Jack’s Landing West near Boulder Cove.  In addition to the forestry industry, scouts can learn about pulp and paper, sustainability and insects.

The trail is open from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. every day of the jamboree.
