The Outdoor Ethics Guide

The role of the outdoor ethics guide gives you a unique opportunity to help others make choices that reduce impacts to our natural environment. This includes reducing impacts made by our passing as well as actions that impact the experience of others. The challenge for all of us is to:

Minimize what impacts you can.

Avoid those you cannot.

Preserve the quality of outdoor resources and recreational experience!

As the outdoor ethics guide, you will have the opportunity to work with Scouts new to the program as well as those with more experience. In some cases, you may take the role of teacher; other times you may serve as a coach. This handbook includes basic information to use in your role along with resources to expand your knowledge. Use this handbook to help you become better aware of the responsibilities and options to use to help your unit understand how to make choices that reduce outdoor impacts.
