The Woodcraft Laws, love, truth, beauty, and fortitude, provide a basis for a code of living at Green River Preserve. In summation, all four laws add up to respect; respect for yourself, for each other, and for all living things. Ernest Thompson Seaton, one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America, wrote the Woodcraft Laws at the turn of the century. He claimed these laws were rooted in Native American philosophy. Green River Preserve uses an adapted version of Seaton’s original.
