Scout / Youth Groups

Wild Outside for Scouts & Youth

Outdoor fun abounds at the nature center. Programs are available for both scout and other organized groups such as:

  • 4-H
  • Brownies
  • Church groups
  • Explorers
  • Scouts
  • Webelos

Call to schedule a time Tuesday through Saturday for a naturalist-led program tailored to your badge needs. Or, schedule a time to do your own free self-guided activities.

Please dress for the weather. Wear a poncho for rain; umbrellas are discouraged. Turn off cell phones. Enjoy the sounds of nature!

Schedule Your Group

Call Ann Hutchinson, Lead Naturalist, at 651-249-2172 to sign up to reserve the time and learn more details. Got a special program in mind that you don’t see listed here, or an adult group that wants a program? Please call to inquire or fill out our online Nature Center Program Form.
