What better way to work toward a badge than to go on an adventure with the Zoo? Join us on a quest to answer questions like: How does the ocean affect weather and climate? How do animals adapt to habitat loss? And what can we do the help the environment? Scout classes are two hours long and can be booked any day of the week or weekend with a minimum of five scouts.
One adult is required to attend with a 1/10 ratio minimum requirement. Classes are geared toward meeting badge requirements while engaging students in hands-on learning, but everyone is welcome to join in the fun.
