Im doing a Hornaday Award for the BSA and I am required to complete 4 conservation projects in the following areas:
Soil and water conservation
Fish and wildlife management
Forestry and range management
Air and water pollution control
Resource recovery (recycling)
Hazardous material disposal and management
Invasive species control
I have to do 1 project from 4 different categories, I have already decided to do invasive species control and fish and wildlife management.
For invasive species control, i am removing buck thorn. the organization i am working for does not allow herbicides, does anyone have an idea of how to remove it, i was originally going to pull it out.
For Fish and Wildlife Management, i am going to build animal habitats to increase animal population, does anyone have any ideas of how i could make these and keep them as natural looking as possible? I was thinking bat houses, but I would like more ideas
now i need to do 2 more projects, does anyone have any ideas? these cant be simple projects such as picking up trash or planting flowers, these have to be extraordinary projects
I am going to have as much help as i need, so the size of the project is no major obstacle
