Here are two terrific examples of innovative ways to save Boy Scout camps while creating a win-win situation for the Boy Scouts and current and future generation of children:
In 2005, the Natural Lands Trust preserved 1,500 acres of Boy Scout camp land in the Pocono Mountains.
Conservation easements ensure that the two camps – Resica Falls Scout Reservation and Goose Pond Scout Reservation – remain open to camp activities while preserving the surrounding woods and streams, forever. The conservation easement on 1,000 acres of the Resica Falls camp is the first phase of a multi-year project to preserve a total of 4,000 acres at the camp. Read the article “Forever Green“.
In another project from 2005, a 455-acre conservation easement on Goose Pond Scout Reservation will restrict future development while providing funds for the camp’s upkeep. The conservation easement will be owned by the Natural Lands Trust, a conservation organization. Learn more.
