NEW GLARUS - The Boy Scouts of Troop 106 in New Glarus have earned the prestigious Hornaday unit certificate and badge.

Dr. William T. Hornaday, an ardent conservationist, established this award program to recognize scouts who undertook and completed exceptional conservation projects.

A Hornaday unit certificate was awarded to Troop 106 after members completed five merit badges related to conservation and the environment.

In addition, the unit carried out a local environmental/

conservation project.

The project was two days of invasive species control for the New Glarus School's prairie.

The Hornaday badge was awarded to Andrew Newberry for outstanding service to conservation and environmental improvement. Newberry led the way for the troop in obtaining the required merit badges.

He also conceived, planned and led the New Glarus School's prairie project. He has been involved with several other scouting conservation projects.

Scoutmaster David Woerpel received a certificate of leadership. Woerpel completed several leadership trainings throughout the year and has been scoutmaster for Troop 106 for the past three years.
