Take an interest in conservation all over the United States. You may think that soil erosion, floods, or forest fires thousands of miles away have little effect on you. But they affect you just as surely as if they happened in your community. The need for conservation of natural resources is a serious problem facing America today. It is something that every citizen should understand.

— Boy Scouts of America, Handbook for Boys, copyright 1948 (fifth edition, twelfth printing, September 1958)
