Conservation in Northeastern Colorado / Western Nebraska / Southeastern Wyoming

Instilling values in young people and preparing them to make ethical choices throughout their lifetime is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America.

As an American, I will do my best to
Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation-minded

BSA Outdoor Code

The BSA’s Outdoor Ethic is summarized in the Outdoor Code. Scouting has adopted the Principles of Leave No Trace to build upon the ethic in the Outdoor Code and to provide more specific outdoor use guidelines and skills.

The Longs Peak Council has a rich tradition of stewardship and awareness of our wonderful outdoor resources. We encourage this tradition with a Conservation program that includes Awards, Grants, Projects, Resources, Scholarships, and Training. Use the Conservation menu to learn all about our program. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Karl Brown, our Conservation Committee Chairman.
