The Mississippi Forestry Association is again providing this great activity for Scouts and Webelos at Hood Scout Reservation. Forestry Day will provide a great outdoor experience for Scouts, Webelos, and Scouters to learn about Pulp and Paper and Forestry from experts of the MFA, foresters, and others and spend a day and/or the weekend at Hood Scout Reservation.
Units may camp out during this weekend. There will be no charge for camp at HSR this weekend.
Scouts and Webelos are encouraged to participate in Forestry Day as an opportunity to learn about the outdoors, participate in hands-on activities such as Forestry Products processing and to complete requirements to earn either the Pulp & Paper Merit Badge (Scouts, BSA) or the Elective Adventure: Into the Woods (Webelos | Arrow of Light). Adult leaders can complete the Chainsaw Safety Course.
