REMINDERS AND UPCOMING EVENTS
Scouts should bring the completed safety checklist from the back of the Emergency Preparedness MB Workbook tonight (as well as their entire workbook, pen/pencil, and handbook).
February 11 PEEC is hosting a Winter Ecology Hike ($5 per person). This is a great opportunity for Scouts to fulfill First Class requirement 5(a): Identify or show evidence of at least 10 kinds of native plants found in your local area or campsite location. You may show evidence by identifying fallen leaves or fallen fruit that you find in the field, or as part of a collection you have made, or by photographs you have taken. For more information contact PEEC.
Boy Scout Troop 376 is hosting a MB Expo in Brooklyn over Presidents’ Day Weekend. For more information click on the images below to enlarge or visit GNYC BSA. Free Adult Training is offered as well. Scouts must obtain signed blue cards from Mr. Fedina prior to attending.
