Attention Girl Scouts! Want to have a wild time exploring the Zoo while meeting requirements for Journeys or Badges? Join us as we work on Scout requirements through hands on activities, explore the Zoo, and enjoy an up close encounter with some of our animal ambassadors. Designed specifically for Girl Scouts, these workshops are sure to be an adventure!
SCOUT PROGRAMS BY LEVEL:
If you love animals and nature, then this is the workshop for you. This two-hour workshop explores animal basic needs, feeding and communication. Each scout will receive a journal containing activity pages that will help them begin (but not complete) their 3 Cheers for Animal Journey.
Dive into the wetlands at the Zoo. This two-hour workshop will help Brownies begin (but not complete) their Wonders of Water Journey badge. Discover the water cycle and learn the importance of wetlands in the ecosystem. And, let’s not forget the animals that live in the wetlands!
