Last Spring, we were given a four page flyer entitled "Conservation Good
Turn - Working Together to Enhance the Environment" at one of our
Roundtables. The publication number on the back is 21-386 and it was printed
It looks to be a National Boy Scout promotion of conservation projects that
are to be carried out by local units in cooperation with conservation
agencies. A number of project ideas are identified for all levels of
Scouting, from Cub Scouts through Explorers. You might ask Long's Peak
Council if they can supply you with a copy.
The awards are fairly modest - a certificate obtained through application to
your local council and Conservation Good Turn Patches which are available
for purchase at the service centers.
