To encourage Scouts to view the world around them with open eyes
Map of area with route to follow
Leaders with knowledge of area being used!
Scouts will be despatched in patrols to follow a route marked on their map in a local wooded area with a time to be back at base.
As they follow the route they are required to look out for wildlife, both fauna and flora, and to decide which is natural wildlife and which introduced.
Each Patrol should be accompanied by a Leader who knows the route and is able to give "gentle" pointers as to what things are.
