Soil and Water Conservation Activities for Scouts.
Soil Conservation Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
The purpose of the learning activities outlined in this booklet is to help Scouts understand some conservation principles which hopefully will lead to the development of an attitude of concern for the environment and a commitment to help with the task of using and managing soil, water, and other natural resources for long range needs as well as immediate benefits. The conservation activities include such topics as making soil artificially, soil particle size, water absorption in soils, organic matter, stream sedimentation, life in the soil, capillary action, mulching and soil cover, contouring, field slope, and fertilizers. A discussion of the United States Department of Agriculture's Scout Council Conservation Awards concludes this booklet. (BT)
