While the actions of these scouts in altering the landscape of this national park is shameful to say the least, agitating for prison time is a little
over the top.
Certainly an appropriate fine could be measured out, as well as requiring the offenders to do mandatory community service in parkland conservation
work for an appropriate time.
Some class time spent learning about leaving things as you find them, and required work in the field cleaning up messes where park visitors have not
left things as they found them could very well get the message across.
Additionally, separately as an action by Scout leadership, they should either be required to start over on all their Scout accomplishments, merit
badges, or whatever, as well as required by the Scout leadership to lecture at scout gatherings about land conservation and leaving things how you
Turn the whole thing into a learning lesson where everyone can benefit while also applying punitive measures.
