Brownie Scout Badge Workshop—Bugs

Brownies will explore the world of bugs and learn more about small creatures that make a big difference in the biodiversity of our region. Docents will lead Brownies through the world of incredible insects, taking a close look at the difference between bugs, beetles, spiders, and insects. The group will tour the Museum exhibitions to observe live insects and finish the workshop with an edible art project.


Junior Scout Badge Workshop—Animal Habitats

Southern California has an abundant diversity of plant and animal life. Docents will take Juniors on a tour of Coast to Cactus in Southern California, one of the Museum’s permanent exhibitions, which explains how animals have adapted to the diverse ecosystems of the region. Scouts will explore the exhibition’s specimens, immersive environments, hands-on exhibits, live animals, and innovative media to learn about how they can help protect animal habitats.

Prices subject to change without notice.

Note: Boy Scout programming is currently in the works and will be available in 2017.
