DFW Civic Trail, Citizenship in the Nation MB Activity

AFTER this weekend’s Family Fun Fest, Scouting Families can take on the DFW Civic Trail.  Dr. Ed Richards has used the following activity as an accompaniment to the Citizenship in the Nation Merit Badge.  What is great about this activity is that, in our current pandemic environment, it allows for social distancing and it is outdoors.  Dr. Ed has been using this local activity for over 10 years with great success.

“As residents of the Dallas – Fort Worth metropolitan area we have access to many Civic focused memorials. They include a large replica of the Statute of Liberty, a full-scale replica of the Liberty Bell, full scale replicas of the Founding Fathers statues, and many others. In putting this DFW Civics Trail together I found that visiting all of the monuments is a very rewarding trek. This document is the result of many years of mentoring hundreds of scouts along this trail. The complete Trek can be accomplished in one long day of about 6-8 hours or divided into two morning sessions.”
