Historic Trails Award Patch
To Earn this award,
members of your unit must plan and participate in a historic activity. A unit historic
activity requires members to:
Locate a historic
trail or site and study information relating to it. (The information may be obtained from
an adult historic society, public library, or people living near the trail or the site.)
Hike or camp 2 days
and 1 night along the trail or in the vicinity of the site.
Cooperate with an
adult group such as a historic society to restore and mark all or part of this trail or
site. (This may be done during the hike or overnight camp.) Or cooperate with such a group
to plan and stage a historic pageant, ceremony, or other public event related to this
trail or site -- such event should be large enough to merit coverage by the local press.
Your unit leader
must then file the Historic Trails Award application with your council service center.
