Sponsor Information
This is event is being graciously hosted by the Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation Department (GCPRD).  They are the home of 50 parks.  Many parks feature lovely views of woodlands, lakes, meadows, streams and gently rolling hills. The parks include several historic sites and museums to help you explore the past and enjoy Gwinnett County history. On an average day, the Community Recreation Centers are filled with a multitude of activities and events for infants to senior citizens.

Harbins Park is a 1960 acre park located in the Dacula area of Gwinnett County (# 42 on the map) ideal for this unique event.  In partnership with GCPRD, all participants will be given an opportunity to practice Leave No Trace, Outdoor Ethics, the Outdoor Code, perform a Conservation Good Turn, as well as work on the World Conservation Award.
Conservation and Scouting has been a part of the program for over 100 years.  At this event we will have the opportunity to earn, learn, and practice conservation.   

  • World Conservation Award - Boy Scouts may work on one of the 5 merit badges for this award as well as complete a conservation project.

  • Conservation Good Turn Award - All participants will have the opportunity to earn the Conservation Good Turn Award.  Scouts and Scouters alike can earn this award

  • Service hours that can be applied toward the scout's rank.  Conservation service hours are now required for the Life Rank.

Want to learn more, then join in the fun and be prepared to learn about these and many other conservation related programs within Scouting as well as a few of the many resources available.
Counselor Information
We will be using the BSA merit badge blue card application for the merit badge classes.  It is recommended that all MB Counselors take the MB Counselor specific training now available on in the training center under the Boy Scout program section.

All adults present must provide a copy of their current youth protection training (YPT).

All MB Counselors must be currently registered for the merit badge being taught.
Unit Sign-up Instructions

Each unit may register their scouts for this event on the website.

Adults should also register for the event so we can get an adequate head count for the adult class in the morning, lunch, and for the service project in the afternoon (this will help us determine supplies and logistics).

Scouts must be able to participate in both the morning session (MB class) as well as the afternoon session (conservation project) to be eligible to register.

All participants (Youth and Adults) must complete a volunteer waiver form.  These will be emaile to all paid participants prior to the event date.
