Scouts will learn what animals need in order to survive and how the Zoo cares for the animals that live here. Scouts will build their own animal homes and learn how they can help care for animals in their own backyard. This workshop fulfills some (but not all) of the requirements for the "5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals" journey.
Scouts will have a wild time in their jammies at our Pajama Party at the zoo! Troops will visit our penguins at night, go on a flashlight scavenger hunt, make some cool crafts and meet some animals up close ! We'll serve pizza and juice and Scouts will earn a patch for participation
