  • Learning about the creatures and plants that share our living world
  • Learning about the types of fish near the Scouts’ homes
  • Learning how to observe and listen carefully
  • Learning how to protect the environment
  • Learning important life skills
  • Learning what the fish eat, how they can be caught, and how we can conserve and preserve our fish by using the concept of catch-and-release fishing
  • Practicing service to the community and the world
  • Practicing ways to conserve in the world around us
  • Taking care of plants and the environment
  • Understanding different types of equipment and making simple fishing tackle
