Pack It In, Pack it Out!

The number one unwritten rule of exploring nature is to leave no trace; what you pack to bring in, you pack to bring out. One person’s waste on our trails is not only an eyesore for the next to walk by, but could do significant damage to the local flora and fauna.

Happy Founder’s Day!

February 22nd marks the birthdays of a very important person in the history of scouting and guiding: Robert Baden-Powell. In 1903, Major-General Robert Baden-Powell returned to England from Africa, where he had been involved in the Boer War. Although still involved in the Army, his combat days were over. He had a new mission: to get boys outdoors, learning some of the important skills needed by the Army at that time.
