Before heading out for our hike, we will go over the importance of the Cub Scout Six Essentials, Outdoor Code, and Leave No Trace Principles for Kids. We will be sure to practice all of these principles as we hike! We will put our observation and identification skills to work as we look for plants, animals, fungi, and other signs of life. This program covers Requirements 1-4, 6, and 7.
