Before there was a forest, there was a tree. Before the tree, there was a seed. And, before the seed could grow, it needed the right climate and care to reach great heights.
If you are a parent, a volunteer, BSA staff member, or Scouting supporter, you have helped to sow a seed of greatness in every Scout whose life you have touched. How well you take care of a seed impacts how well it can grow. And after a century of planting character and integrity into the hearts and minds of our country’s young people, more than 100 million Scouts have grown into some of the nation’s greatest leaders, advocates, citizens, parents, and friends.
From the first Scout in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has created a legacy. From one tree today, we can create a forest to witness the next 100 years of Scouting. We invite you to help in the planting of 100,000 trees, creating a strong, living symbol of Scouting’s century of contributions.
Through the Arbor Day Foundation, everyone can join in the Boy Scouts of America 100th Anniversary celebration through the purchase of a Centennial Tree. As part of the 100th Anniversary Generations Connection program, join Scouts from all over the Country as they plant ‘living legacies’ of Scouting’s commitment to supporting youth and families. For each tree that is ordered, the Arbor Day Foundation is donating a corresponding tree to build the newly designated Boy Scouts of America Centennial Forest. The Centennial Forest will aid in re-planting the Flathead National Forest in Montana. Or, if you choose, you can have both trees planted in the BSA Centennial Forest. Trees will be shipped directly to the Forest during the proper planting season.
WHO WILL YOU PLANT YOUR TREE FOR? GENERATIONS CONNECTION! LET US KNOW WE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
