I feel that scouting is a program designed to increase and develop skills
not only outdoor skills, but leadership skills as well. The program allows individuals to learn about future opportunities through merit badges while improving outdoor skills, demonstrating good citizenship, and how to be a leader in your community, all in great balance.

SILVER BEAVER AWARD

The Silver Beaver Award is bestowed upon only those persons who have given continued, unselfish, and effective service to the community, usually through the program of the Boy Scouts of America, but not limited to Scouting. Because Scouters may not nominate themselves for this award, only those persons who have been nominated by their Scouting peers are considered. The Silver Beaver Award is the highest recognition the Dan Beard Council can bestow upon its volunteer leaders.

Congratulations to the individuals shown below who were recipients of the Silver Beaver Award in 2019. For more information on the Silver Beaver Award, click here.
