We are Counselors who are also Park Naturalists by profession which teach a variety of Scout badges.

We teach the following Badges as a intensive one day course: Bird Study, Environmental Science, Fish and Wildlife Management, Forestry, Geology, Indian Lore, Mammal Study, Nature, Soil and Water Conservation, and Weather.

The scouts are not guaranteed to earn the badge if they take the course, but only if they successfully complete the requirements.

These badge courses are taught off-site, either on scout trips, scout meetings, or at the local parks. One of the counselors, Brian Kristal, is an Eagle Scout with a Gold Palm and has been teaching merit badges since 1994

We also conduct courses for other scouts of differering ages.

In addition we teach an array of nature related Girl Scout Badges from all ranks, Brownie, Junior, Cadet, and Senior.

Our goal is to help your scout progress to the rank of within their Scouting organization .
