Boy Scout Programs

  Boy Scouts at the Education Center

Boys work with a teacher/naturalist to complete the following adventures.  The fee is $7 per boy and any participating siblings with a $50 minimum.  There is no cost for adult chaperones.  Programs run 1.5 hours and maybe available on weekday evenings and weekends.  

LION LEVEL

This youngest age group visits for a Nature Center Explore.  Scouts explore outside the Center and along the Briar Patch Trail.  They investigate animal artifacts such as fur, feather, skull and track, nests and eggs.  Scouts create a simple animal craft and visit with the Nature Center resident animals.

 TIGER LEVEL

Tiger Adventure: Tigers in the Wild

Scouts learn the Cub Scout 6 Essentials for a hike and additional useful equipment through a circle worksheet.  They consider the Outdoor Code and Leave No Trace Principles before heading out on a hike into the Briar Patch Conservation Area to look for and learn about trees and other plants, animals and animal signs.  Back inside boys look at examples of chewed nuts, pinecones, acorns and deer antlers.  Boys then choose and meet 3 to 4 of our resident animals to learn some interesting facts about each.
