bullet Forestry Projects 
bulletCollections: Many collections may be Good Turns if I made for school or community house. 
bullet Maintaining Game Refuge and Bird Sanctuary: This can only be done, of course, on a permanent camp site. 
bullet Posting Notices Against Hunting: An interesting and worth-while objective for an autumn hike. 
bulletWinter Bird Feeding: One of the most popular Good Turns. This can be done regularly, and furnishes a basis for regular scheduled hikes, or in times of emergency after snow and ice storms. 
bullet Forest Fire Patrolling: Especially in the autumn, Scouts have co-operated with forest rangers in many localities in a thoroughly worth-while service in patrolling for unextinguished camp fires, etc.
bullet Fighting Forest Fires: Scouts render great public service by co-operating with the Forestry Service in the prevention of forest fires and in active methods to stem the course of such conflagrations.  Conditions in fall and early winter increase the danger of fire and facilitate its spread.  The dry wood, the dead leaves, shrubs and grasses are highly combustible.  Whether it be by patrolling the regions in search of unextinguished camp fires or by helping clear camp sites for tourists in especially desirable places as was done by the Scouts of Kellogg and Mullan, Idaho, every form of co-operation will be of genuine assistance.  A splendid Good Turn for the permanent camp, where equipment can be kept in readiness.  Hold forest fire-fighting drills in the over-night camp.
bullet Locating Game or Rescuing People Overcome by a Blizzard:  a valuable form of emergency service is a long hike after a blizzard to locate game or people who were overcome by the storm.  In starting out to find missing people, searching parties must consider all possibilities to meet them.  It is foolhardy instead of heroic to start out on an expedition when your own ignorance of the dangers and the methods of rescue is such as to make you more likely to lose your bearings and head than to rescue anyone else.  Such a trip is not for the the amateur but for a level-headed group of Scouts under capable leadership, who realize the conditions they are to face and are prepared to meet them and to render effective aid to those they set out to find and rescue.
