Earn your Forestry merit badge in one day! Join us at Harbison State Forest's Environmental Education Center to earn your Forestry merit badge in a fun, hands-on, educational workshop offered in 2020. The forest is your classroom... In working through the Forestry merit badge requirements, Scouts will explore the remarkable complexity of a forest and identify many species of trees and plants and the roles they play in a forest's life cycle. They will also discover some of the resources forests provide to humans and come to understand that people have a very large part to play in sustaining the health of forests.
You will prepare a field notebook, collect and identify forest trees and plants, study the principles of forest management and learn about forestry's many contributions to society and our way of life.
