Can you please explain what #5 for the Environmental Science merit badge? What construction project is provided or what type of project is BSA looking for?

@Donna - The merit badge pamphlet has the necessary info. I can't define what would count as a project out not - that is up to the scout and his merit badge counselor.

Our summer camp is approaching and #4 is a prerequisite to have done prior to camp. Are there are any examples detailing what is needed. My son has typed up his observations listing the information but it appears that the worksheet is repetitive. He has diagrams of his plots, % of each living item, time, weather. Please advise what is needed so that he has the necessary information to finish the badge at camp. Thank you.

I am interested in working with Boy Scout troops in West Africa around various environmental merit badges, including this particular badge. How do these merit badge requirements for a troop in Silver Spring Maryland apply to troops in The Gambia West Africa. Are the badges contextualized by the Scout Master or has the International Organization already done this. If you can refer me to an International point of contact, I would appreciate it.

@Joanne - The merit badge pamphlet (and the optional worksheet aid) show what should be recorded. Since your son's camp has defined #4 as a PRErequisite, then he really should contact them, or his scoutmaster, to find out what they require. Changing requirements to prerequisites are not the way merit badges were designed to be done. Setting expectations of what is needed for a requirement should be done when meeting with the merit badge counselor.

@John - The Boy Scouts of America program is separate, and not coordinated with, any other country's scouting program. You can find the World Organization of the Scout Movement at scout.org
