Did you know that in the United States:
- Forests cover about 1/3 of the all land, representing about 738 million acres?
- About 1.7 billion trees are planted every year, more than five for every person
- Trees produce one pound of oxygen for every 1.4 pounds of carbon dioxide taken in?
- The forest industry employs about 1.75 million people?
- Trees are a crop, just like corn or soy beans?

Scouts attending the workshop will have the opportunity to complete all requirements to earn the merit badge. Attendance is required for the full duration of the workshop, and reservations are required. The workshop is free, but attendance is limited.
