Selected time

9:00 AM  –  12:00 PM


This workshop weaves exploration, investigation, and experimentation within diverse landscapes to improve your understanding of complex interactions in nature. Participants will learn ecological terminology, assess the pH of Powell Gardens’ bodies of water, model erosion control methods, and learn about Powell Gardens’ efforts to restore native habitat and minimize the impact on natural areas. This experience, designed for scouts ages 11 to 17 (all children of appropriate age are welcome to register), provides an opportunity to fulfill requirements for the BSA environmental science merit badge. Materials, instruction, and a badge are included. Please dress for the weather and light physical activity. Space is limited to 20 scouts (ages 11-17). One adult leader (per scout group) is required as a chaperone. To earn the merit badge, scouts must complete and provide evidence of completion for parts 1, 3f, 4, and 5 of the specific badge requirements (click here) when they arrive for the workshop.

Instructor: Mark Sharp, Powell Gardens K-12 and Family Programs Coordinator
