The May 2009 Cub Scout Monthly Theme is “Leave Nothing But Footprints.”
Here is the official BSA theme description:
“Warm weather is a perfect time for outdoor adventure, complete with den hikes in the neighborhood, park, or on local trails. As we enjoy our outdoor world, we should strive to take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints.
Learn about Leave No Trace frontcountry guidelines and ways we can minimize our impact on the environment. Take a backyard hike and practice the Leave No Trace frontcountry guidelines. Have a contest to see who can take the best wildlife photograph. Earn the Cub Scout Leave No Trace Awareness Award.
Do your Good Turn and leave these areas cleaner then you found them. Remember to record your service with Good Turn for America.
The end of the month has all dens moving up the Cub Scout trail. You might want to consider working on the Wildlife Conservation belt loop and pin this month.” [bold added]
