Programme Spark

The National Trust's 'Natural Childhood' report found that more children can identify a Dalek than a magpie. Nature's being exterminated from children's lives - and they think now's the time to get it back.

As Scouts, our young people should be very well experienced with nature and being outside, more so than some of their peers, but just how well do they compare?

How many of these activities can you tick off throughout the year from your normal Sectional programme?
