Tigers: My Tiger Jungle
Tiger scouts will embark on a tour of the Arboretum while completing hands on activities, as outlined in their scout books. We will go on a 1-foot hike to identify local plants and animals to find out how these animals are similar to animals that live outside of California. By participating in the program, the scouts will complete all the requirements towards the My Tiger Jungle adventure.
Wolf: Call of the Wild
In this program, wolf scouts will identify outdoor essentials, identify local animals, learn basic knot skills and be conscious in the wilderness. This program is intended for scouts to be comfortable outside and learn how to be prepared for their first overnight camping trip. Wolves will complete all five requirements towards the Call of the Wild adventure.
Bear: Fur, Feathers, and Ferns
To earn the Furs, Feathers and Ferns badge, scouts will learn about the natural environment at the Arboretum! We will go for a hike to identify animals living on the grounds and learn how to identify their habitats. We will also learn about native plants and how it supports the wildlife ecosystem. After completion of this program, the scouts will have met all the requirements in this adventure.
Webelos: Into the Woods
During the Into the Woods program, scouts will have the opportunity to understand the connection between humans and the plant world. The scouts will learn how to identify parts of trees, identify native trees and develop a plan to plant and care for a tree. This program will meet all of the requirements for the Into the Woods required adventured.
Night Hike Adventures
On our Night Hike Adventures, Scouts will experience the Arboretum in a whole new light (or should we say, a whole new dark?)! Our Night Hike programs begin with a storytelling session, followed by a hike through the gardens with interactive botanical explorations along the route.
