From hikes to overnighters, Fontenelle Forest's scouting programs provide wonderful opportunities to learn about the outdoors through hands-on activities, games and exploration.
Want to go on a guided hike, see live animals, work on a badge or play games? Bring your Scouts to Fontenelle Forest Nature Center for a one or two hour program led by a Naturalist. Registration is required two weeks in advance.
For information on Girl Scouts Backpacks, please contact:
Brand new – a backpack available for Boy Scouts! Whether you have Tiger Scouts working on their Let’s Go Outside achievement or Scouts who just enjoy hiking, this backpack has everything you need. It is full of field guides that will help you identify the forest’s plants and animals. Registration is required.
No refunds will be given unless Fontenelle Forest cancels the program due to weather.
