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  or a Forest Trek (minimum of 10), contact Patti Bonnin.

Please note: We are only scheduling after-school Forest Treks for the Fall – all other programming is full. However, there are still spots available for individual registrants in our scheduled classes on November 12th and December 10th.

If you are interested in booking a private program for your troop, we have Spring 2017 dates available.
