10/02/22 - Scouting Heritage Merit Badge Hike
Scout Troops, Scouting elders, and the public are invited to join us for a trip down memory lane, learning all about the history of Schiff as it pertains to the Boy Scouts of America. Join local historian, author, lecturer, and member of Schiff Natural Lands Trust's Board of Trustees, W. Barry Thomson for a narrated hike showcasing the rich and complex history of what is now the Schiff Nature Preserve in Mendham. Attending the Historical Scouting Hike program will help scouts meet most of the necessary requirements for earning their "Scout Heritage Badge". (Criteria # 6 and 8 will not be met by attending this program.) Starting at the Nature Center, we will hike to the Brookrace manor house to gather in the ballroom for a visual slide presentation and to view scout artifacts that directly address several of the criteria for the merit badge. Schiff locations that directly relate to the "Scouting Era" include the Nature Center, Lake Therese, the former boathouse (now private residence), the manor house, the Great Meadow, Dan Beard's Cabin, Wood Badge Lodge, and the Amphitheater. Program is appropriate for middle school ages and up. Carpooling is strongly recommended for parking at the Nature Center is limited. Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes, weather appropriate clothes, and expect that the walking portions of the Historical Hike range in time from 7-15 minute spurts and will involve some incline.
