Are you working on becoming an Eagle Scout or know someone who is? Those scouts who attend Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary’s two-day Environmental Science Merit Badge Workshop (March 21 & 28) and complete their homework will be able to complete the Environmental Science Merit Badge!
The Environmental Science Merit Badge is one of the options for the 21 required badges that must be earned prior to being awarded the rank of Eagle Scout. While earning the Environmental Science merit badge, Scouts will get a taste of what it is like to be an environmental scientist, making observations and carrying out experiments to investigate the natural world.
Heard scouting workshops are led by currently registered merit badge counselors. Preregistration and prepayment is required. Attendance at both the March 21 and March 28 sessions is mandatory. The workshops will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and are $75 per scout.
