Forestry Day 

Due to the tremendous success of the previous Forestry Day, the Mississippi State Extension Service and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, is again providing this great activity for Scouts and Webelos at Hood Scout Reservation. Forestry Day will provide a great outdoor experience for Scouts, Webelos, and Scouters to learn about Pulp and Paper and Forestry from experts of the Mississippi Forestry Commission and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and spend a day and/or the weekend at Hood Scout Reservation.

Units may campout during this weekend. Please fill out the camp usage form which is a part of this registration.  There will be no charge for camp at HSR during this weekend. 


Scouts and Webelos are encouraged to participate in Forestry Day as an opportunity to learn about the outdoors, participate in hands-on activities such as Forestry Products processing and to complete requirements to earn either the Forestry (Boy Scouts) or the Elective Adventure: Into the Woods (Webelos). Adult leaders can complete the Chainsaw Safety Course.
