Patches

Patches

The Keep Texas Beautiful Patch Program is designed to give recognition to the outstanding efforts of Scouts in their communities. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Camp Fire youth or other youth group members may earn patches by participating in various events.

Waste In Place

Waste In Place

The Waste in Place curriculum addresses the problem of waste and its disposal alternatives, and emphasizes responsible solid waste handling practices through hands-on activities for pre-K to 6th grade students. This unique curriculum aims to help youth have a better understanding of their community, the environment and to explore how they can make a difference in litter prevention and community improvement.
