Escaping Extinction

Conservation of endangered species is a challenge in the race to beat extinction. We’re all on the same team, so let’s join forces to learn about protecting the wildlife around us. Scouts will meet real endangered or threatened animals and learn about threats to their habitats and then work together to take action for wildlife in a mini-stewardship project.

Wild Dwellings

What does “home” mean to us? What does “home” mean to wild animals? They’re more similar than you may think! This program will introduce scouts to the different types of wild animals in the Bay Area. Activities include exploring animal  homes, learning the secrets to their success, and discovering what we can do to protect wildlife habitats.

Speak for the Trees

In this program, scouts will be outside observing trees, collecting data as scientists, meeting a Lindsay animal ambassador from a forest habitat, and practicing good stewardship of our local trees. We will continue the program inside and study specimens from Lindsay’s Natural History collection while sharing fascinating information about trees from around the world.
