Upcoming Scout Programs

Canoeing to Crooked Run

Scheduled Trips:
10 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 2 p.m.

Join us for a paddle up the Ohio River and into Crooked Run Nature Preserve. During this guided trip, we’ll keep an eye out for wildlife and learn what depends on our river systems as well as the unique history of the Ohio River in connection with Chilo Lock 34 Park. Space is limited. Email to register. Participants must be at least 8 years old.


Flower Fun for Girl Scouts
6:30 to 8 p.m., Friday, Aug. 6, Shor Park

Join us to learn what’s blooming in the meadows of Shor Park. How are these flowers different than those that bloom in the spring or in the forest? What adaptations help them thrive and do they interact with other organisms? Discover the answers to these questions through a hike, hands-on activities, and make a flower craft to take home. This program is recommended for ages 8 to 12, and can satisfy the Junior Flowers badge requirements.

*All programs must meet a minimum of four participants or be cancelled due to low attendance.
