Boy Scouts- Conservationists? Not So Much...

saw this via RagBlog -What else can you call clearcutting 34,000 acres of forest?

I suppose what the New Boy Scouts are being taught is that It's All About the Money

"Every time (a council) gets a new scout director, they call a state forester to come out and see if there is any good timber to harvest," said Paul Tauke, Iowa state forester. "There's always pressure to make money."

Some scout councils say they have reluctantly resorted to logging simply to shore up sagging operating budgets.

"I butchered the property," said Bruce Faller, a district commissioner for a Vermont scout council, describing a 2006 logging operation he ordered for financial reasons. "It was old, big beautiful wood ... I wouldn't have done it if there (were) any other way."
