New Outdoor Ethics Award Replaces Leave No Trace Award

The Boy Scouts of America has replaced the Leave No Trace award with a new Outdoor Ethics award. The former Leave No Trace badges are no longer available for purchase in Scout shops.

Guided by the Outdoor Code and Leave No Trace, millions of Scouts have enhanced their awareness of the natural world around them, minimizing impact to the land. For Scouts who have a deep interest in the outdoors, nature, and the environment, Scouting’s outdoor ethics will give you an ever-deeper appreciation of the richness of the land and how we fit into it. If you are prepared to venture down the path of really becoming aware of your surroundings, of building the skills that will allow you to leave no trace on the land, then the Outdoor Ethics Awareness and Action Awards are for you.

    This is a great thing, and I think is something that all Scouting units should focus on achieving this coming year. In fact, I think that everyone in the community would benefit from going through the requirements and associated videos and documents.
