Mammal Badge

Mammal Study Merit Badge

Burpee is offering In-Person and Virtual Merit Badges

In this class, scouts will earn their Mammal Study Merit Badge.  Be prepared to learn about mammals through our exhibits and collections. Using in-person tools or virtual tools, scouts will discover how mammals survive, understand diversity, and how they are classified.

Some requirements will need to be completed prior to this session and a written report presented. If the homework is completed, our registered Mammal Study Merit Badge Counselors can sign-off on their Blue Cards.

Pre-registration & prepayment are required to attend.
