3 e. Endangered Species – Complete at Home and Bring Copy
- 1. Do research on one endangered species found in your state. Find out what its natural habitat is, why it is endangered, what is being done to preserve it, and how many individual organisms are left in the wild. Prepare a 100-word report about the organism, including a drawing. Present your report to your patrol or troop.
- ( Bring to Bartle from Mustang Campout Hike ) Choose two outdoor study areas that are very different from one another (e.g., hilltop vs. bottom of a hill; field vs. forest; swamp vs. dry land). For BOTH study areas, do ONE of the following:
- Mark off a plot of 4 square yards in each study area, and count the number of species found there. Estimate how much space is occupied by each plant species and the type and number of nonplant species you find. Write a report that adequately discusses the biodiversity and population density of these study areas. Discuss your report with your counselor.
Mammals Merit Badge – Complete at Home and Bring Copy
3c. From study and reading, write a simple life history of one nongame mammal that lives in your area. Tell how this mammal lived before its habitat was affected in any way by man. Tell how it reproduces, what it eats, what eats it, and its natural habitat. Describe its dependency upon plants, upon other animals (including man), and how they depend upon it. Tell how it is helpful or harmful to man
Visitor’s Day at Camp Bartle
Parents/families plan to arrive around 10:00 AM, leave by 4:00 PM. Be on time. Your Scout will be anxiously waiting for you.
Bring enough food for your family for lunch, please leave dinner for your Scout. Families should plan to bring chairs. There are some tables available but collapsible/portable tables are welcome to ensure space for everyone to enjoy time together.
Consider that there is no refrigeration and it may be very hot – plan your Scout’s dinner accordingly. In addition the buses are very full – leave a collapsible container or something that may thrown away to save space for the bus ride home.
Parking is at a premium – expect a line. You may arrive early to attempt to get a closer spot, but please do not enter the camp site before 10:00 AM.
Wear sturdy shoes with toes – sandals and sharp rocks make for an unhappy day. “Be Prepared” to walk – your Scout will want to show you around.
Take home dirty clothes, souvenirs or other unneeded items from your Scout.
