The Conservation Good Turn Award is an opportunity for Scout units to join with conservation or environmental organizations (federal, state, local, or private) to carry out a conservation Good Turn in their home communities. Working together in the local community, the unit and the agency plan the details and establish the date, time and location for carrying out the project.

Conservation projects should involve the entire unit - scouts, leaders, and family members. Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts participating in the Conservation Good Turn can also meet some advancement requirements.

  • Natural Resource and Conservations Service (NRCS)
  • U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

  • Bureau of Land Management
  • National Park Service
  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
  • local City Works department
