Q: Requirement No. 4 for the Cub Scout Outdoor Ethics Awareness Award says to "participate in an outdoor ethics activity facilitated by a person who has completed the BSA outdoor ethics orientation course or is a BSA outdoor ethics trainer or master." Is there an orientation course?

A: The person who can facilitate the outdoor ethics activity in Cub Scout Outdoor Ethics Awareness Award requirement No. 4 is any person who is any of the following:

  • a Leave No Trace Master Educator or Trainer,
  • a Tread Lightly! Master Tread Trainer or Tread Trainer,
  • a person who has completed either the BSA outdoor ethics orientation course (in beta testing) or the BSA Leave No Trace 101 course,
  • or any person who has earned the BSA Leave No Trace Awareness Card.

It's also allowable for any individual designated by a council outdoor ethics advocate or, in the absence of an advocate, the Scout executive or his or her designee, to facilitate the "outdoor ethics activity."
