Save Our American Resources
"Project SOAR"

Project SOAR was established in the Longs Peak Council in 1980, and since that time tens of thousands of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, and adult leaders have earned this annual conservation award. Each year a species that is endangered, threatened, or of concern is selected for a special award patch.

The requirements for earning the award are simple:

  • Complete a minimum of three hours of conservation service as approved by a Scouting leader.

There is no form to complete to obtain the awards. Award patches may be purchased at Longs Peak Council Scout Shops, and during the summer months at summer camp trading posts.

Income from the sale of the patches is placed in a special custodial account with the Longs Peak Council. These funds are used annually to purchase the current year's patches, fund the annual William T. Hornaday Award Scholarship, support the council's conservation grant program, and assist with other efforts as deemed important by the Council Conservation Committee.
