- 5. Develop a plan to care for and then plant at least one plant or tree, either indoors in a pot or outdoors. Tell how this plant or tree helps the environment in which it is planted and what the plant or tree will be used for.
- 7. Explain how the growth rings of a tree trunk tell its life story. Describe different types of tree bark and explain what the bark does for the tree.
This will complete most of the badge. The only remaining requirement would be an at home activity.

- 9.Do ONE of the following:
- a. Visit a museum of natural history, a nature center, or a zoo with your family, Webelos den, or pack. Tell what you saw.
Requirements 5,6, and 7 can all be covered while on a trailwalk of our grounds. We can do a lesson on bird flyways to meet number 4, and a pond investigation study to meet number 5. And of course number 9 is already fulfilled by visiting.
With all those the scouts will meet the required 6 tasks needed to complete their badge.
