Girl Scout Day
Does your Girl Scout want to earn a patch for meeting a lion, tiger, or wolf from just 5 feet away?
A fabulous day devoted to learning about wild animals up close, Girl Scout Day is full of fun activities, special handling demonstrations, and girl power! The Conservators Center opens its doors to our local Girl Scouts with learning activity stations, scavenger hunts, and more. Don’t miss this opportunity to earn the special Conservators Center Badge and learn about the animals with whom we share our planet!
Over 300 Girl Scouts and their guardians participated in our spring Girl Scout Day at the Conservators Center…and we made some changes to the event just for them!
In our BRAND NEW 2018 format, registered scouts will spend their day:
- meeting our animals on age-appropriate tours;
- asking questions of our friendly guides;
- examining fur and paw castings;
- playing with the same giant toys our big cats use;
- picking out cool temporary tattoos and stickers;
- taking selfies with standees of our residents;
- earning the special Conservators Center patch;
- making new friends;
- and more!
New animals…new games…new learning stations. Even if your troop has visited before, you’re not going to want to miss all the exciting changes we’ve made!
“Our girls truly loved the event. They came home exhausted but very excited!”
“This is the best event I’ve attended in 32 years of Girl Scouting.”
“Extremely well run and organized; please make this an annual event!”
