How many hours has to be worked in order for the boys to receive the award?

Ashley - There is no requirement for a certain number of hours.

My cub scout pack uses this unit award as sort of a "mini-Hornaday" for projects that are only one day. Examples include a 6-hour project clearing and restoring park trails after a snow/ice storm and 5-hours planting trees in the state capitol's parkland. It gives the unit an award recognition certificate and the boys a temporary insignia award patch without having to send Hornaday nominations past council to national. When we do multi-day/detailed planning projects, then we use the Hornaday Unit Certificate.

My pack is planning on completing a Conservation project, some of the leadership want to apply this project towards the Conservation Good Turn Award, however I want to leverage for my den to earn the World Conservation Award. I like the world over the good turn because it requires not only the single project but also completion of several wolf electives and think that it helps improve attendence and involvement in our den activities. So I am interested in thoughts about this, can a pack service a single project and have it applied to seperate awards at the den level?

@Mike - If the project meets the requirements, I see no reason why scouts in your den couldn't use it differently.
I would not be comfortable counting the single project towards multiple awards, if it were me.

@ DL Mike - My thoughts would be if the pack is all in it together the CGT award would be a good fit. Since the World Conservation award is geared different at each rank. Plus you can easily fit an outdoor belt loop in with the WC award at the same time.

I have permission from our neighborhoods Facility and Grounds Manager, to include the Proprietary, for my Den to clean the pond, woods, and open field in our neighborhood that is designated a wildlife area. An eagles nest was built and placed there this summer for an eagle project with the local Troop. Can we use this as our Conservation Good Turn event for the award since it has approval from the local Facility and Grounds Manager? Thanks
