Cub Scout Workshops

Cub Scout Workshops


Scouts can work towards a variety of badges or journeys while they investigate the fascinating ecosystems here at the Arboretum. All of our scout programs are conducted by staff naturalists and use our nature sanctuary as a field laboratory for hands-on experience!

To book a private workshop for your troop (minimum of 10), contact Patti Bonnin.
