Badge Programs for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts

The Arboretum offers badge programs for scouts of all ages, including
geology, forestry, naturalist, and Native American themes. Programs can
also be designed upon request. The Arboretum welcomes scouts in the
evenings, on days when schools are closed, or on weekends.

Scout program fees are $7 per scout for a two-hour program and $10 for a three-hour program, with a minimum of ten scouts.

The Arboretum is proud to be the site of two Eagle Scout projects,
culminating in the creation of an observation deck along the Blockston
Branch and the Arboretum's nursery building. Volunteer opportunities for
scouts incude trail maintenance and seasonal care of the Funshine Garden.
