Calling all Boy Scouts! Join the zoo for a wild adventure as we explore the Zoo, work on Scout requirements through hands on activities, and enjoy an up close encounter with some of our animal ambassadors. Cub Scouts can work toward a Belt Loop or Academic Pin. Boy Scouts can work towards Belt Loops, Activity Badges, or Merit Badges. Designed specifically for Scouts, these workshops are sure to be a wild time!
