If any of the Cub Scout packs need someone to come do a Leave No Trace - Outdoor Ethics presentation, I am more than happy to come do so. It takes about 15 minutes. The last part of the presentation is a "test" where the scouts get the opportunity to learn how long it takes things to decompose and I have "prizes" for the winners along with stickers for everyone. Leave no trace/outdoor ethics is referenced in Tigers in the wild, Wolf - Call of the wild & Paws on the path, Bear Necessities, Webelos Walkabout and AOL - Outdoorsman, etc

Just send me an email and I can schedule a time to come see you (yes, I'll come to Smyrna too if anyone out there wants me to come do a presentation).
