Girl Scout Juniors Animal Habitats Badge & Junior Cave Explorer Patch Combo w/Geology Rocks Add-On

March 23 @ 5:45 pm - March 24 @ 3:00 pm

Earn a badge and a patch during this weekend combo event. Girls will earn the Jr. Cave Explorer Patch! Cave animals, caving safety, and karst topography are all topics which will enrich their knowledge. In the Animal Habitat badge, learn why animals live where they do and how we can protect those areas. Girls will discuss cave animals and habitats, create a poster about endangered species, and build a bat house to put up in their communities. This event includes a presentation about cave conservation, cave animals, and cavern formation. The highlight of your trip will be touring TWO beautiful crystal caverns. Included are workshops to fulfill badge/patch requirements, indoor “slumber party” style lodging, evening snack, and a lunch-time meal.
Optional: Get more out of your event by adding the Geology Rocks Patch. Dig into the geosciences with activities to learn about rocks, fossils, and soil. Each girl will make a fossil cast to take home.
