Scouts Need Your Help

Dear Reader,

The Boys Scouts of America have a program called Sea Scouts. It is a program for boys and girls that teaches all the moral and life skills the Boy Scouts are famous for, but it accomplishes the mission not on land, but at sea.

For more than half a century the Sea Scouts have used space at Maritime National Park in San Francisco. But something has happened. The Superintendent of the park has begun a push to so severely limit the Sea Scout's traditional use of the park that the Sea Scout program in San Francisco will likely not survive. You can read more about it here, where you will find a list of ways you can help.

Thank you.
