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!

Programs are designed specifically for scouts. Siblings are not permitted unless they are registered for the workshop.
