Scouts-L Mail Archive for April of 1999: Environmental Science timeline
Environmental Science timeline
Fri, 23 Apr 1999 23:31:36 -0400
Our troop has been working some on Environmental Science at our monthly
meetings, and we have come up against a bit of difficulty. For the
first requirement, you have to make a timeline of the history of
environmental science and identify the contributions of the BSA.
Getting at least a few dates of general events (beginning of national
park system, etc) is fairly easy with the MB book, but finding
dates/events of the BSA's involvement is not (the only specific thing
mentioned is Seton's advocacy for the environment before he helped found
the BSA). Some of the boys have also tried going to the library and
asking the librarian for help, but he was stumped as well.
So my question is this: what are good resources for information about
the contributions of the BSA to environmental science, especially info
in a format suitable for putting into a timeline?
Thanks for your help,
