Applying Outdoor Ethics in your Unit,
District, and Council

This conference provides guidance to council volunteers and professionals on implementing the BSA’s Outdoor Ethics program in the local council. It is particularly designed for individuals serving as a council outdoor ethics advocate or interested in serving in that position. We will discuss outdoor ethics programs in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing; effective coordination with other aspects of council operations including camping, conservation, and training; effective implementation of Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly! courses, and much more. Representatives from the BSA Outdoor Ethics Task Force and successful council outdoor ethics advocates will serve as the faculty for this conference.
