Girl Scout Workshops

Help scouts earn some or all of the requirements for a badge or journey. Scouts investigate the nature sanctuary with a naturalist and learn about the fascinating ecology of the forest. All of our scout programs are conducted by staff naturalists and use our nature sanctuary as a field laboratory for hands-on explorations!

For private workshops (minimum of 10), contact Naletta Galbraith. Inquire on our website or to for more details.
