What could be a more natural partnership – Scouting and geocaching! Both programs love and support the outdoors, and both get us all away from the TV and video games!
This series of caches highlight another component of Scouting: Service. All Scouts performs many hours of community service, from collecting food each year to a myriad of conservation projects. This series highlights just a few of these.
Scouting provides a tremendous number of service hours to the community. If you took the total hours of community service conducted by the Marin Council in one year and assigned that to a single individual working 40 hours a week…how long would it take them to accomplish the same amount of service? Answer: 18.95 years!
The first 12 have been set in Marin County, California, and there will be more to come.
