Among my scouting leaders long years ago we had the benefit of a forestry specialist who gave enthusiastically of his time. 

I suspect his hope was that what he shared would be long lived and contagious for members of our group. We had notable special excursions related to trails. We had an opportunity to learn and discover the art of trail mending, trail tending, trail signing and marking among others.
