 Patch Descriptions

1) The fireweed blooms in areas where forest fires happen and can fill entire hillsides. It can be made into tea, honey, and other foods.

2) Alaska is the mecca for dog sled racing and the famous Iditarod is based on the serum run from Nenana to Nome.

3) Did you know that Ranch dressing was invented in Alaska? That's right, it was here in the Bush where it was first made.

4) The Alaska Pipeline delivers oil from the North Slope down to Valdez, so it can be shipped out to be refined for your use. The pipeline is an engineering marvel.

5) The polar bear is an icon in Alaska. Not only would we let them use our canoes, if they wanted to, but they are fantastic swimmers! All North American bear species can be found in Alaska.

Scout together make something happen!

Scouts do stuff. They build things. Play with purpose. Make friends and work together.

Set goals and clear them. They go places. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. These life-changing experiences — and the confidence they provide — become bricks in the wall of childhood. Bricks that eventually form a foundation. One a Scout can stand on to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles. For the parents watching in awe, it’s not a question of where their Scout will go, but where won’t he go.
