It has hair, it’s warm-blooded, it’s a mammal! We’re not just talking about humans, we’re talking about all of those other mammals out there. Mammals are truly unique creatures. Scouts will learn how the animal kingdom is classified, and they’ll get a chance to make an animal tracking pit and see what they can catch. Dress for the weather, as some of this program is held outdoors.
Boy Scouts are expected to have read the merit badge book and must bring their blue card from their Scoutmaster. Every attempt is made to complete all merit badge requirements during the workshop (if prerequisites have been completed).
Merit badges are not given out at the workshop; however, all participants will receive a special Hendricks County Parks Nature Challenge badge!
Bring your BSA Mammal Study merit badge book, your completed worksheet pages with the prerequisites, bug spray, a light jacket, a snack, and water bottle.
Merit badge requirements covered at workshop: #1, 2, 4d, and 5.
Prerequisites: merit badge requirement #3.
Recommended for grades 6-12. Open to boys and girls, scouts and non-scouts.
$10/attendee. Advance registration required by Nov. 16.
