Boy Scout Programs at the Zoo

Our Merit Badge workshops work to cover as many requirements as possible, all while getting a unique experience that only the Zoo can provide. Workshops include live animal encounters, hands-on activities, and chats with wildlife experts. Workshops last approximately 2 hours.

All Scouts attending a workshop will earn a commemorative Zoo Scout Patch.

For all Merit Study Programs: You will receive an email after you register about what requirements are not covered during the workshop and tips about how to complete them. Scouts can complete those requirements ahead of time and bring examples of their work with them. Our educators can sign off on the blue cards (we do not supply the blue card), or you can send in the finished requirements after the workshop and we will mail the signed card back to you.
