The Sustainability Program will introduce the concept of environmental sustainability and will lead the Scouts through a series of activities that will deepen their knowledge of sustainability concepts. Participants will explore concepts such as individual and community actions, energy sources and use, climate change and carbon emissions, and biodiversity. The Museum of the Earth has a new, permanent exhibit on climate change and energy, and the program will include exploration of the online version of the exhibit.  Activities in this program will include those that can be done offline wherever a Boy Scout is located, as well as online through exploration of interactive tools and maps.


We are asking parents and Scout Leaders to help us by agreeing to lead small breakout room Groups for discussion as part of this program for the First Session.  (Second Session will be the entire group.  If willing to help, please email
