Boy Scout Badge Days

Boy Scout Badge Days at Spring Lake

Get out into nature with our programs just for boy scouts!

Join us for exciting science and nature programs planned just for Boy Scouts. Check-in begins at 9:30am at The Meadows Center ticket kiosk. Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Tickets are $10-$12/person; children 2 and under are free. Each scout will get a glass-bottom boat patch.

Spring 2017 Schedule:

Environmental Science Tour - June 25, 2017

  • Time: 10am - 12:30pm
  • Cost: $12 per person
  • Length: 2.5 hours

The Boy Scout Environmental Science program will help scouts understand the importance of critical habitats, with an up close look at the San Marcos Springs. Scouts will explore various environmental science concepts while learning about the endangered species of Spring Lake. This program is inspired by the Environmental Science Merit Badge, but is not an official badge program and does not meet all badge requirements. It is the responsibility of the troop leader to check current Boy Scouts of America's current badge requirements and have scouts complete the remainder of the program in accordance with them.

Naturalist Tour - July 16, 2017

  • Time: 10am - 12pm
  • Cost: $10 per person
  • Length: 2 hours

Webelos will study six wild animals up close as they view our freshwater creatures in their underwater habitat, identify the poisonous plants and animals in Central Texas and locate the bird migration pathway. This program  includes a glass-bottom boat ride.
