Today, I enrolled my son into Beavers (the level just before cub scouts). He is very excited about going and participating in the nature walks, camping and all around outdoor fun.
The Environment section of their mission statement is as follows: youth learn to become caretakers of the environment.
I am so excited for him - it will further instill the values that we are implementing at home and it is my hope that he can gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the natural world surrounding him and how fragile it can be.
Go get 'em my little tree hugger to be...
