Do you need help meeting the requirements of a nature-themed badge? Look no further than White Memorial Conservation Center. Programs last up to 1½ hours and cost $120 (25 people maximum). This cost also includes free admission into our Nature Museum. Programs take place either in White Memorial’s classroom or out on our 4,000 acre property. During a guided scout program at White Memorial, you can complete the requirements for the following awards:
- Tigers – Tigers in the Wild Adventure
- Wolves – Paws on the Path Adventure
- Bears – Fur, Feather, and Ferns Adventure
- Webelos and Arrow of Light – Into the Wild Elective Adventure and Into the Woods Elective Adventure
We can also conduct a program that fulfills any one aspect of a scout requirement. Examples include:
- Tiger Adventure: Backyard Jungle – 5. Go on a walk, and pick out two sounds you hear in your “jungle.”
- Wolf Adventure: Council Fire – 6. Learn about the three R’s of recycling.
- Bear Elective Adventure: A Bear Goes Fishing – 1. Discover and learn about three types of fishes in your area.
- Webelos Adventure: Walkabout – 3. Describe and identify any poisonous plants and dangerous animals.
- Arrow of Light Adventure: Camper – 6. Go on a geocaching adventure with your den or family.
- Daisies – Clover (Use Resources Wisely)
- Brownies – Hiker, Bugs, Senses
- Juniors – Animal Habitats
- Cadettes – Night Owl (Steps 1 and 2), Trees
Just ask how we can design a program to meet your needs.
NOTE: These scout programs are led by our Education Director, who needs to work a Monday-Friday schedule to accommodate school groups. Therefore, scout programs are ideally scheduled Monday-Friday as well, often after school or on early dismissal days.
Feel free to also peruse the many other public programs and group programs we offer. From guided hikes to “Star Parties” to geology lessons and more, these programs may also help you fulfill particular requirements. Why not turn your field trip to White Memorial into an overnight adventure? Camping for scout groups and other non-profits is available at White Memorial’s Pine Grove Campgrounds at no charge! Reservations are required, however.
