    I went to a scout meeting tonight and spoke about scout beekeeping. The interest was great and over half raised their hands, including the adults, when I asked if they might be interested in learning to keep. Hopefully, by spring I will have a half dozen or more new, young beeks, and a few parents.

    good going Iddee. Did the scouts ever reinstate the beekeeping badge?

    Not nationally, but from what i understand, local troops can pursue it and award it if they can find the badges.

    No, they did not reinstate the badge. Instead they added new material concerning beekeeping to the existing badges. I guess it was sort of a compromise. Perhaps they are concerned about liability with the actual badge.
