Boy Scout Workshops

Boy Scout Workshops

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 are conducted by staff naturalists and use our nature sanctuary as a field laboratory for hands-on explorations!
