Nature and the Good Visitor
Great Salt Lake Council

Set Up: Cubmaster (CM) and Committee Chair (CC) and four Cub Scouts

CC:         Our pack meeting tonight brought us all together to think about nature. We can enjoy the great outdoors but we must think of others who will follow us. Wherever you go in the great wide world of nature, try to be a “good” visitor who will leave the plants and the creatures for others to enjoy after you leave.

Cub #1:     The only shots I took were snapshots.

Cub #2:     I tried to walk on pathways to keep off plants.

Cub #3:     When I see animals or birds, I try to remember that I am a guest in their living place and I don’t do anything to them but look at them.

Cub #4:     The one big thing I always do when I am ready to go home is to look and see that all fires are out in nature’s

Cub #5:     backyard.

CM:         With Cubs and Webelos like you to help keep our friends on the ball, I’m sure that the beauties of nature will be around for years to come. Thanks Cubs, Good night.
