To Earn this award, members of your unit must plan and participate
a historic activity. A unit historic activity requires members to:
1. Locate a historic trail or site and study information relating
to it. (The information may be obtained from an adult
society, public library, or people living near the
trail or the site.)
2. Hike or camp 2 days and 1 night along the trail or in the
vicinity of the site.
3. Cooperate with an adult group such as a historic society to
restore and mark all or part of this trail or site.
(This may be done during the hike or overnight camp.)
cooperate with such a group to plan and stage a
pageant, ceremony, or other public event related to
or site -- such event should be large enough to merit
by the local press.
4. Your unit leader must then file the
Historic Trails Award application with your council service center.
