Merit Badge Awardees (click for latest awards)

My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Linda Van Ausdell!!!

Linda Van Ausdell (Vanavista , #4347) has received a certificate of achievement in Outpost for earning a Beginner Level Speak for the Trees Merit Badge!

“I went to the Sandy Historical Museum and found an old tree book, then found a newer copy at the library. My husband and I own a tree farm, and by that I don’t mean Christmas trees. I can identify many different types of trees. My favorite trees are Cedars. They grow by streams and rivers. They consume up to 30 gallons of water a day. We also have Douglas Firs and Hemlocks.

I enjoy walking through our forests and looking at our trees, so this was a very enjoyable merit badge.”

    thanks for sharing, Linda. I love to take walks around our area & try to guess which trees they are. I also take my tree book and double check to make sure I am right! Way to Go!
