About the Program

This program allows scouts the opportunity to earn their Conservation Scouts fun badge at Potawatomi Zoo. Join us in meeting endangered species, learning about conservation efforts, and participating in hands-on activities! The Conservation Scouts program is open to scouts of all levels and ages.

Why Conservation is Important

Potawatomi Zoo introduces scouts of all levels and ages to conservation as they learn about the importance of conservation through hand-son activities, animal encounters with endangered species, and a zoo scavenger hunt! After completing the program, each scout will earn a Potawatomi Zoo Conservation Scouts patch!

Conservation Scout program
is $10 per

Scout with one chaperone for every five Scouts admitted free. There is a minimum of five Scouts per program or equivalent payment if fewer Scouts are present. Additional adult chaperones are $8 each.

To maximize the Scouts’ experience, the Education Department does not allow siblings or other family members in Conservation Scout Programs. Families may visit the zoo during the program and then meet up with the Scouts following the program. Due to classroom space, programs are limited to 40 people.
