Our idea for handling this was similar to Jim McMaster's, only that we
would ask the Scout to verbally list the animals and where he had seen
them, rather than making a written list. The requirement does say "in your
community," so you do want to impress upon the Scouts that they should be
aware of the wildlife where they live, not just out at the Scout camp or
wherever you happen to be taking your hike.
