A schedule-your-own option is available for both Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups. Email [email protected] to set up your customized program.

The Zoo has also just launched pre-scheduled sessions designed specifically for Daisy, Brownie or Junior Girl Scouts. Girls can sign up as groups or individuals for these two-hour workshops. The workshops will enhance participants’ relationships with Zoo animals and create stronger connections with nature. Opportunities for other scout organizations will be available this summer and fall.

Girl Scouts who participate in the spring workshops will get to connect with other Girl Scouts and establish relationships throughout their community of peers. These workshops are designed around nature-driven badge requirements and will give girls the opportunity to work together with a common goal.
