Historic Trails Award
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
- 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.
