Scouts of all ages will enjoy the merit badge sessions in the Nature area. First-year Scouts regularly participate in nearly all of the sessions, except for the Eagle-required Environmental Science which is designed for older Scouts.
Tuesday evening at 9:00pm, the Nature staff hosts a "frog hunt," a nighttime quest for wildlife observation. While participation is required for Scouts in Reptile and Amphibian Study merit badge, all other Scouts are also invited and encouraged to attend.
The Nature area is open to Scouts, leaders and visitors on Wednesday evening before campfire. Stop by and see the snakes, turtles, and other creatures! And of course, no visit to the Nature area would be complete without observing the Weather Rock.
The Nature area is also open on Thursday evening after Vespers.
