Girl Scout Programs

Brownie Try-Its

  • Eco-Explorer- Discover what animals need to survive, go on a Zoo nature hunt, create an animal habitat and speak up for animals!

  • Outdoor Adventurer- Touch, smell and listen as you trek through the Zoo, play a relay game and bunk with the beasts in the Zoo (this is an overnight program, additional fees apply).

  • Senses- Use your eyes, ears, nose, and hands as you explore the Zoo and see how our animals use their senses.

  • Watching Wildlife- Become an animal architect, learn how to communicate like the animals, observe their wardrobe, create a shopping list and build a home of your own. 


Junior Girl Scout Badges

  • Earth Connections- Travel through time and learn how to be an ecologist all while trying to save the plants and animals.

  • Plants and Animals- Create a creature cluster, learn about pesky plants and critters, wild relatives, and generate a garden gift.

  • Wildlife- Take a closer look at some of our Zoo animals; find out who's staying alive, who's family, and who's holding the binoculars.
