This week SFI joined the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) in West Virginia for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree. We have formed a unique partnership with BSA based around our core principles of using education and hands-on activities to help youth learn about sustainable forestry and environmental conservation.
The Scouts pictured here are trying to solve a wooden puzzle to earn a cherrywood neckerchief slide with an SFI logo design.
Many Scouts also tried to win a special patch by completing the Conservation Challenge: following the Jamboree’s Conservation Trail and answering 20 questions on different aspects of conservation. Want to see if you could compete with the Scouts? Here are some of the questions they have to answer:
Q: This term describes “meeting the need of the present without compromising the needs of future generations”?
Q: What West Virginia native wrote “Smokey the Bear” song?
Q: What BSA High-Adventure Camp forest is certified to the SFI Standard?
Check back on Monday for the answers to see how well you did!
