Take a quick look at how theSummit Bechtel Family National Scout ReserveExternal Link is meeting the challenges of environmental stewardship, conservation, and Leave No Trace practices as we prepare for the project’s grand opening at the 2013 National Scout JamboreeExternal Link. In this new video, Allison Schapker, director of sustainability for the Summit, briefs the Scouting world on just one aspect of the BSA’s efforts at the site: lumber.

The voluntary Sustainable Forest Initiative management plan at the Summit means, in part, that trees that are cleared for creating the Summit get milled locally and reused on the property.
