Looking for something to share with your Scouts about Nature?  Take a gander at the Council's Nature Notes Blog.

Bab Garst publishes his Nature Notes once a month on various topics covering Nature.  These can be used by leaders when discussing nature with their Scouts or looking for a good Scoutmaster/Packmaster minute subject.  

NATURE NOTES have now been posted every two weeks on the BRMC Website for over a year.  Bob has heard favorable comments from many of you on the NOTES.  He knows some of you are reading them, but he is curious as to how you are using them to help scouts appreciate and understand nature.  Let him know at This email address is being protected from spambots.

What is Wood Badge?

Winterplace is pleased to offer the “Scouts on Ski’s” program again this season February 6, 2022.
