Cub Scouts participate in Patch Day 2019.For seventeen years between 2002–2019, the annual Patch Day Workshop, was a time for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and other groups in 2nd through 5th grade to earn the blue and white embroidered ‘Partnering for Clean Streams’ patch by participating in various water-related activities. Water quality professionals from around Northwest Ohio led activities that taught youth the importance of water in daily life. Adults and youth alike were introduced to the role of stormwater in our local water system, the importance of storm drain stewardship, waterway pollution issues, and ways to conserve and protect our shared water resources.

The program was put on hold as an in-person, one day workshop in 2020 but is still woven through many of the other programs and activities we do throughout the year. Our ongoing stewardship programs are excellent opportunities for youth engagement, and for those Scouts looking to fulfill various requirements or volunteering.
