The Urban Ecology Program for Scouts
The Nature Center offers badge and award programs in subjects related to natural history, geology, forestry, wildlife, and conservation. The fee for badge programs and scout field trips is $5.00 per student per badge. For more information, call (909) 349-6994.
Scout candidates have completed a number of successful projects benefitting the Nature Center and surrounding park. Here are a few of our most recent Scouts and their projects. If it's your goal to receive a Scout award (Eagle, Gold, Silver), we are happy to work with you to develop an exciting project serving the local community.
MacKenzie, Briana & Melissa
MacKenzie, Briana & Melissa spent a few weekends here at the Nature Center removing grass from plant beds (where we have difficulty growing grass due to lack of sunlight) and on National Public Lands Day they planted native plants in the empty beds. We were happy to help them complete their project towards their Silver Award and learn more about water saving as well as native plants. Come visit us at the center to see the new plants as they grow!
