The following Good Turns to everybody should be done by all Scouts. These are outdoor Good Turns.

bulletA Scout woodsman is careful with fire. He builds no fire where trees or shrubs will be burned.  When leaving, he guards against destructive forest fire by putting out his fire with care.  He builds no fires in the forest preserves.
bulletA Scout woodsman is careful with glass, he never breaks a bottle or glass in the woods or sands or streets.  He knows that some innocent person or child may step on the glass and be maimed for life.
bulletA Scout woodsman protects trees, he never hacks them.  To, him a tree is one of God's living things whose arms or body be will not hack nor cut. It takes 50 years to grow the trees.  So the experienced Scout woodman protects them, his friends.
bulletA Scout woodsman guards the wild flowers and plants of the woods.  He does not pull and pick them.  They are his friends and come forth to greet him spring after spring in the same sheltered nook, known only to the few.
bulletA Scout woodsman respects the property of others. He does not take, nor destroy, nor damage things which belong to others.  If he passes through a gate he closes it as he has found it.  He avoids giving offense on hikes by even small trespassing.  He respects the rights of others.
bulletA Scout woodsman is a welcome hiker through the countryside.  He does not shout at the top of his voice nor "rough house" on the way.  He is a quiet, business-like American citizen whom the farmers can welcome the next time he comes.
