Earth Day 2020

 
Here's some of what's been collected! Thanks, Troop 98 Scouts and families!


From Nate C, Troop 98 Outdoor Ethics Guide:

Hello Troop 98 Scouts!

I have a challenge for you and this will count toward your overall virtual Patrol points!

Today Wednesday, April 22nd is the 50 anniversary of Earth DayAs the Outdoor Ethics Guide, I am challenging 
each Scout to go outside and pick up trash in your neighborhood. Please do this while staying safe by wearing a mask and gloves.

Once you've finished your cleanup please take a picture of your trash. Here's what I found within just a few minutes of walking around my neighborhood:

Remember, even a little trash contributes to the Great Global (Solo) Cleanup! Also, please go to this website to register your trash cleanup as part of the worldwide Earth Day effort:  https://www.earthday.org/actions/great-global-solo-cleanup/

Please send a picture of your collected trash (extra points if you're in the photo!) to me at OEG@bsa98.com by this Sunday (and identify yourself, if your email address doesn't clearly do so, in order to give your patrol points).

Safety Reminders:
  • Be aware of private property, and get permission from landowners before going on their land.
  • Roadside litter can be dangerous. Do not open coolers, jugs, bottles and other sealed containers.
  • Make sure you wear gloves, appropriate clothing, and safety gear (a mask!).

Very truly yours,

Nate
