Boy Scouts of America National Jamboree – Every four years, Boy Scouts and their adult leaders from across the country come together for the National Jamboree. This July, over 37,000 Scouts, leaders, parents, and other visitors attended the Jamboree – and for the first time, the League was there!
Over 10 days, more than 2,500 Scouts came to our exhibit on the Conservation Trail to learn how they can protect and improve water quality. Through hands-on activities and using our Aqua Bugs smart phone app, they identified the bugs and other aquatic life that tell us whether or not streams are healthy. Every Scout and adult leader went home with information about the League and how they can get involved to save streams in their communities.
This was extraordinary opportunity to get the League in front of thousands of people interested in conservation and outdoor recreation. And it was possible through the hard work of League members, staff, and interns - and generous support from our donors and the Izaak Walton League of America Endowment.
