Forestry / Plant Science

In this dual merit badge session, Scouts will explore the complexity of forests and trees and the resources they provide to humans. Additionally, Scouts will learn the names and functions of the different parts of plants, gain a basic understanding of photosynthesis, and discover how environmental factors can affect plants. Participants should bring a notebook and adhesive tape to create a leaf collection, or complete it before coming to camp (Forestry requirement 1).  Additionally, Plant Science requirement 6 may be completed prior to camp.
