Hello Folks, I am trying to track the scouts in our troop who have performed conservation hours and also completed their merit badges towards the “Scouts BSA World Conservation Award”. Does Scoutbook automatically track this when the scout has achieved it or does the troop need to review the MB completions along with the conservation hours.
For the manual review, the MB requirements are clear however how do you interpret the conservation hours involved?
The requirement “conservation need common to more than one country” is defined as required. I would assume that most conservation efforts are going to apply to more than one country, is there someplace where the conservation types are defined?
Requirements defined for the award is shared below.
Scouts BSA members can earn this award by earning the following merit badges:
______________ 1. Environmental Science OR Sustainability merit badge
______________ 2. Soil and Water Conservation OR Fish and Wildlife Management merit badge ______________ 3. Citizenship in the World merit badge
AND participate in a conservation project as part of an approved Scouting program totaling at least three hours that addresses a conservation need common to more than one country.
