Scouts BSA Specific Programming
Offering both the Bird Study and Environmental Science Merit Badge
We ask Scouts BSA to do a few pre-requisites before these programs and a couple follow-up activities after each program before the blue cards are signed off by our scout educator, Chrissie. The bulk of the activities that will occur during each program are hands-on or site specific and more easily accomplished in a small group setting, saving on scouts time and resources. Programs are 3 hours each and the fee per scout is $15. Please see the registration links below for all of the information your scout will need as well as register. For more information, please contact Chrissie Rausch at 614-545-5480 or firstname.lastname@example.org
