Last month the theme for our pack meeting was Leave No Trace. Ms. Holtz came to our meeting and taught us about the Outdoor Code and the Leave No Trace Principles. She showed us how to be safe in the outdoors, and what we can do as Scouts to keep the environment clean.
We also got to play some fun games where we learned about how long different types of trash take to break down. Let’s just say that styrofoam never goes away!
I never thought about what she called ‘micro trash’ before. That’s what happens when you just peel off a corner of a granola bar and it gets lost in the leaves on the ground. It’s easy to lose and not good for the environment.
Everyone had a great time and learned a lot. Thank you, Ms. Holtz!
