Scout Programs

Our trails are perfect for your troop!

With 50 acres of fields, woods, pond and prairie, amazing birds of prey, dozens of critters, and more, the Leslie Science & Nature Center is an ideal setting for your Girl Scout or Cub Scout troop to explore. Our active and informative programs will enable your scout group to complete most (if not all) of the badge requirements. We'll explore science and the environment through indoor and outdoor games, projects, visits to our live animals, and interpretive hikes. Our history underscores values of service and citizenship that being a scout helps instill.

Your troop may choose a two-hour program or an overnight program.
