      The BSA is saluting 20 years of trail work by issuing a special patch that can be purchased by Scouts and Scouters who will be participating in a National Trails Day event. The National Trails Day 20th Anniversary Patch will be available for purchase at the ScoutStuff store or our local Scout Shops.
      Recognizing the first Saturday in June as National Trails Day (but reminding Scouts that anytime is a good time for trail cleanup projects). “Schedule a trail cleanup and wear this patch to show the world your commitment to keeping our trails clean!”
      What is National Trails Day®?
      American Hiking Society's National Trails Day® (NTD) is a celebration of America's magnificent Trail System, occurring annually on the first Saturday in June. NTD features a series of outdoor activities, designed to promote and celebrate the importance of trails in the United States. Individuals, clubs and organizations from around the country host National Trails Day® events to share their love of trails with friends, family, and their communities. NTD introduces thousands of Americans to a wide array of trail activities: hiking, biking, paddling, horseback riding, trail running, and bird watching and more. For public and private land managers alike, National Trails Day® is a great time to showcase beautiful landscapes and special or threatened locales as thousands of people will be outside looking to participate in NTD events.
      National Trails Day® evolved during the late ‘80s and ‘90s from a popular ethos among trail advocates, outdoor industry leaders and political bodies who wanted to unlock the vast potential in America’s National Trails System, transforming it from a collection of local paths into a true network of interconnected trails and vested trail organizations. This collective mindset hatched the idea of a singular day where the greater trail community could band together behind the NTD moniker to show their pride and dedication to the National Trails System.
