Girl Scouts


Visit our beautiful wildlife refuge and outdoor classroom for a unique and memorable experience! Our environmental educators will guide scouts through exploration hikes and interactive activities specifically designed to fulfill requirements for a nature-related badge:

* Daisies can earn their EcoLearner badge as they get first-hand practice protecting nature, or their Outdoor Art Maker badge as they create nature-inspired art.

* Brownies can earn their Outdoor Adventurer badge as they explore the outdoors in a new way, or their Bugs badge as they experience the world of insects and spiders.

* Juniors can earn their Animal Habitats badge as they learn about the places animals call home, or their Flowers badge as they enjoy the science and beauty of our native flora.

*If you have something else in mind, ask us about customizing a program for your troop.

Field trips are 1-2 hours long, and visitors are welcome to stay and enjoy the site for the rest of the day following the program. Trips are $10 per scout (unless otherwise noted). There is a minimum of 8 scouts to schedule a trip. Please bring at least one adult chaperone per every 8 children. There is no charge for adult chaperones and non-participating siblings. A variety of times are available, including afternoons and weekends.
