Spring Scout Day
April 5, 2020
Come and work on scout badges and achievement requirements at the Botanical Garden! This workshop is for Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts K-3rd grade. Scouts will visit stations and go on a nature walk. Some of the topics include: composting with worms, insects, Leave No Trace, planting seeds, and pollination. Scouts will receive a garden fun patch and a list of completed activities. 2nd and 3rd grade scouts should arrive at 12:00 pm and K and 1st grade scouts should arrive at 12:30 pm, to make the check-in process smoother. If you have a mix of ages, anytime between 12 and 12:45 is fine. You can leave any time you are done.
Cost: $12 per scout. Adult chaperones are free. Please register individually and not as a troop.

Scout Workshop: BSA Landscape Architecture
This workshop will cover the requirements for the BSA Landscape Architecture badge. We will tour part of the botanical garden, do some plant identification, design a landscape for a local building, talk about careers in the field and meet with a landscape professional. The Scouts will have “homework” to do before the workshop. We do not provide the badge. Workshop size is limited. Each scout needs to have a supervising adult with a ratio of 1 adult per 4 scouts or less. Workshop is led by a BSA merit badge counselor. $12 per scout. Adults are free.
Private Scout Workshops
Private Scout workshops are currently being offered on a limited basis as we continue to develop this program. Please email Kate Sorensen to organize a private badge workshop at the Garden for your den or troop.
