Scout Programs

Scouting is closely tied to the exploration of nature, environmental ethics and education, and community service. Over the years, The Watershed Institute has partnered with scout groups in environmental conservation, advocacy, science, and education – furthering our missions to foster stewardship, build community, and demonstrate leadership.

Our Watershed Educators are prepared to help your scouts earn badges and fulfill requirements while exploring different habitats of the Watershed Reserve. We can accommodate troops of 15 scouts at a time. A minimum of one adult chaperone is required for all visits. Scout badge programs run from 1.5-2 hours.

Boy Scout badges include:

  • Bird Study
  • Environmental Science
  • Fish and Wildlife Management
  • Forestry, Geocaching
  • Insect Study
  • Mammals
  • Nature
  • Plant Science
  • Reptiles and Amphibians
  • Soil and Water Conservation
  • Sustainability
  • Weather
  • Wilderness Survival.

Girl Scout badges include:

  • Animal Habitats
  • Bugs
  • Geocacher
  • Senses and Trees


Our educators also schedule scout programs throughout the year for larger size groups. Boy Scout and Girl Scout camp-ins inside the Watershed Center are available, which include badge work, night hikes, and campfires. We are always happy to expand our offerings and work with your troop to develop and present additional badges or a specialty workshop.
