Mini Badge workshops (1 ½ – 2 hour programs) for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts.
Help scouts earn some or all of the requirements for a badge or achievement. Scouts investigate the nature sanctuary with a naturalist and learn about the fascinating ecology of the forest. All of our scout programs use our nature sanctuary as a field laboratory for hands-on explorations!
