Welcome to the official website of the Redwood Empire Council, Boy Scouts of America. We are pleased to offer this site as a resource for all individuals involved in the Scouting program.
Please join us as we will celebrate the outstanding achievements of two dedicated Scouters who have earned the Silver Beaver Award. The Silver Beaver Award is the highest honor that a council can present a volunteer. It is an award based on not only their dedication and service to Scouting, but also to the dedication and service to the greater community.

The Orca Lodge, Order of the Arrow, is hosting several Outdoor Ethics Training courses. The updated Scout Handbook has new requirements related to both Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly. This is your chance to have someone from your Unit get the most current training with Father Nayture.
Survey data shows that 50% of teens begin to self-medicate with over-the-counter medicines in their homes as early as ages 11, and each year, there are approximately 10,000 children seen in emergency rooms because of errors made in the self-medication. This program improves the knowledge gap that youth have when it comes to medicines and will teach skills needed to use medicines responsibly.
The OA is Scouting’s Honor Society and serves to enhance the Boy Scouting program for youth who embody and demonstrate the high ideals of the Scout Oath and Law. The Order of the Arrow seeks to expand throughout the Council this year.
Beyond the merit badges and the leadership positions, there is your Eagle Rank Service Project and a seemingly daunting trail of paperwork and approvals. This FREE seminar will give you the inside scoop on how to navigate through all of this.
