The purpose of the Outdoor Ethics Guide Handbook is to guide units in developing a culture that effectively demonstrates responsible outdoor choices that reduce impacts of Scouting activities. Introduced in September 2017, the handbook identifies the responsibilities of the outdoor ethics guide, provides ideas on how to carry out this role, and lists resources. It also provides methods for the Outdoor Ethics Guide Advisor or other adult leader to support Scouts selected for this position and a way to evaluate success.

The 25-page document, which is available as a free PDF download, includes:

  • An explanation of the outdoor ethics guide’s role.
  • A list of rank requirements the outdoor ethics guide can help fellow Scouts earn.
  • Outdoor program planning tips.
  • A list of functions of the outdoor ethics guide advisor.
  • A self-evaluation for the outdoor ethics guide.
  • An explanation of the Teaching EDGE method.
  • A fillable duty roster for delegating Leave No Trace responsibilities.
  • A Leave No Trace troop assessment form.
  • A fillable planning guide with a Leave No Trace focus.
  • A conservation project checklist.
  • A list of websites to learn more.
