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 educational tours, and girl power! The Animal Park at the Conservators Center opens its doors to Girl Scouts with learning activity stations, scavenger hunts, and more. Don’t miss this opportunity to earn the special Animal Park at the Conservators Center patch and learn about the animals with whom we share our planet!
Over 500 Girl Scouts and their guardians participated in our 2019 Girl Scout Days!
At Girl Scout Day 2020, registered girl scouts will spend their day:
- meeting our animals on age-appropriate tours;
- asking questions of our friendly guides;
- participating in learning stations;
- earning the special Animal Park at the 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!”
