In October, the BSA announced the William T. Hornaday Award, was discontinued, and replaced by the new BSA Distinguished Conservation Service Award. The new BSA Distinguished Conservation Service Award will continue to recognize the conservation efforts of Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts, adult volunteers, and other individuals, corporations, and institutions that contribute significantly to natural resource conservation and environmental protection. It has been streamlined and modernized to build on the extraordinary contributions made by all the dedicated award recipients to date, and we believe the changes will help make these important efforts even more accessible for today’s members.
To support the rollout of this exciting new awards program, information and materials have been updated on the national conservation website. Click here for details.
