Conservation

The Western Massachusetts Council conservation committee serves to promote and support the conservation education program and facilitate wise use of the natural resources of the council. We provide guidance to the ecology and conservation program delivered to the youth by promoting the Horace A. Moses Scout Reservation as a living classroom for environmental education, providing advancement opportunities with conservation projects and a quality merit badge program, and by promoting outdoor ethics and Leave No Trace principles.

The committee assists in administering the forest stewardship management and camp conservation plans, supervising wise trail construction and maintenance, and acting as the advisory committee for the William T. Hornaday program within the council.

Our committee welcomes anyone interested to our meetings, held on the third Monday of the month.
