According to http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/OutdoorProgram/OutdoorEthics/Awards.aspx the version of this award "for Cub Scouts and leaders" was retired in June 2016. This was clarified to mean "Cub Scouts and Cub Scout leaders". Boy Scouting, Venturing, and Sea Scouting leaders may continue to earn this award.

The Outdoor Ethics Awareness Award is designed to introduce awareness of Outdoor Ethics by learning about Outdoor Ethics, Leave No Trace, and Tread Lightly!.
