Great Field Trip for Scouts

As we get closer to the holidays we want to remind all scout leaders of a great opportunity for their troops.

Our Christmas Is For The Birds program is not only a great Christmas Program for all youngsters, but for Scout troops it provides the opportunity to satisfy some of the requirements for badges.  For instance, for Brownie troops there is the opportunity to meet some of the requirements for the Animals Try It.

In addition to the World Bird Sanctuary program, there is also the opportunity to explore the rest of our grounds in a quest to satisfy badge requirements.  Also, we are right next door to Lone Elk Park, which also presents the opportunity to fill requirements for many badges.

Christmas Is For The Birds takes place on Saturday, December 5th.  Children will have cookies and milk while waiting to have their photograph taken with our Turn of the Century garbed Santa.  Santa will be holding our Eurasian Eagle Owl, Xena--a member of the largest owl species in the world!  Where else can the youngsters have such a unique Santa photo taken?  After having their photo taken youngsters will walk down to our Nature Center to enjoy such activities as story telling, a sing-along and making a Christmas craft to take home.
