    SHF Radio: 2013 National Jamboree Patch Report

    in Blogs

    While patch trading wasn't the only thing happening at the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree it was just as popular as ever with the Scouts, Scouters, and visitors.  On tonights episode I'm going to give my personal take on patch trading at the Jamboree.  I'll give my opinions and share my experiences having gone in for all 7 days that visitors were allowed to do so.  My guest is Rick Bedsworth who was in charge of the Collections merit badge staff representing ISCA.  Rick will share news of the 600+ Scouts who earned the badge along with his take on how the patch trading went at the Jamboree.

    Climate Ride for National Parks

    in Environment

    John Garder (pictured on far right) and Natalie Levine (center picture) from the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), call in to chat with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith, during the 2015 Climate Ride California North Coast. On the NPCA team, John and Natalie talk about the ride, and the climate change issues facing our National Park system.

    Climate Ride California is more than a bike trip – it’s an inspiring journey with like-minded people who are united by their passion for sustainability, renewable energy, and bicycles - the ultimate carbon-free form of transportation. Since 1919, the nonpartisan National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) has been the leading voice of the American people in protecting and enhancing our National Park System’s most significant lands and landmarks.

    This interview originally aired on May 18, 2015 as part of Big Blend Radio's Vacation Station Travel Radio Expo, that broadcasted live from Yerington Inn, in western Nevada.
