Upcoming Scout Programs:

Monday, February 26th: Maple Sugaring for Scouts! @ Pattison Park Lodge (5:00 pm – 6:00 pm)
Scouts can take a tour of our sugar bush and learn the process of maple syrup making.  During our short hike, scouts will learn how to identify a sugar maple and how we collect the clear, sweet sap. We will learn all about how and why the trees create this sap, and how we can turn it into delicious maple syrup! Recommended for Daisies and Tigers.
Sunday, March 11th: Girl Scout Animal Habitats @ Kelley Nature Preserve (10:00 am – 11:30 am)
During this program, scouts will learn about their local wildlife and explore different animal homes and habitats. Scouts will hike the trails of the preserve and do fun activities to learn about the importance of habitat and how they can positively impact their environment and local wildlife! Recommended for ages 8 – 12.
 **All programs must meet a minimum of 4 participants, or the program will be cancelled due to low attendance.
