We’ll give you a breakdown of different age groups and the requirements for each, so can understand what to expect from your conservation partners. Listen as a scout leader tells you how to connect with scouts in your area. This course will offer a brief overview of the organizational structure and how each organization operates. The knowledge learned in this course will help make your conservation goals be relevant to scouting goals—forging a long-lasting, mutually beneficial partnership, as you discover how you can meet their learning goals while enhancing your habitat or strengthening your community engagement.
