Game and Fish Sponsors Earth Day Project - Earn a Patch
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is once again celebrating Earth Day by sponsoring clean-up days on publicly owned or managed lands. With Earth Day recognized April 22, each Scout who participates in cleaning up public lands through May will receive a specifically designed conservation patch.
Groups participating in the Earth Day project are encouraged to take the following precautions to ensure safety: keep young people away from highways, lakes and rivers; and only allow older participants to pick up broken glass.
Interested participants are asked to contact Pat Lothspeich at 328-6332 to receive a reporting form for their project. Don't forget to record those service hours at servicehours.scouting.org as well!

Exploring – A program of the BSA
When Scouting programs are mentioned most, if not all, think of Boy Scouts, Venturing, or Cub Scouts. There is another program offered through the BSA for youth ages 14 to 21 with a career-based approach. Explorer Posts are chartered by businesses or organizations within our communities that offer specific educational elements. Mandan Police Post #2853 is currently the only Explorer Post in Frontier Trails, but other opportunities are being explored for future.
If you have an idea for a Post, are interested in learning more about the Mandan Police Post, or would like to volunteer in an Exploring program contact Marie at the Bismarck Scout Office.

|Internet Advancement 2.0|
The new tool to quickly input advancement data, Internet Advancement 2.0 (previously known as Scoutbook Lite) is now live.
This free solution replaces the previous Internet Advancement platform, which will be retired (for all programs except Exploring) on June 10, 2019. Internet Advancement 2.0 will feature a clean, new user interface and will be optimized to whatever device you use: desktop, tablet or smartphone. Internet Advancement 2.0 will offer optimized functions for everything found in the current Internet Advancement platform and can be accessed by Unit Key 3 users, Unit Key 3 delegate users and Unit Advancement Chairs.
End users will access Internet Advancement 2.0 via one of the following locations using their my.Scouting credentials:
• From the Legacy Tools menu in my.Scouting.org
• A link in Scoutbook.com
• From the current Internet Advancement Platform
After initial release, the BSA IT team will continue to add additional features on a regular basis. Updates and new features will be communicated as they are delivered.
