Burpee is offering In-Person and On-line Merit Badges
In this class, scouts will earn their Bird Study Merit Badge. Be prepared to look for these amazing creatures outside. We’ll discover amazing bird adaptations using mounts and other items from the Museum’s Collections. Scouts will learn how to use field guides and binoculars and use their new skills to identify birds found on the museum grounds, or in their own local park. Some homework is required, worksheets will be provided upon registration. If the homework is completed, the scouts will have earned their Bird Study Merit Badge and our registered counselors can sign off on their Blue Cards.
All classes will be held virtually until tier three mitigations have lifted in Illinois
Scout Participant $15
Scout Leaders Attend FREE, extra adults/siblings $6.00 each.
