2019 Insect Study Merit Badge
Scouts BSA Insect Study Merit Badge
Butterfly Wonderland, featuring the largest butterfly conservatory in the country with over 3,000 fluttering butterflies, transports guests of all ages to the rainforest by immersing them in the world of butterflies and other rainforest animals. Live exhibits connect people to nature through a sensory experience that educates, entertains, and provides a refuge from the outside world.

In order to maximize the number of scouts who can participate in the program, we request that parents are not in the room with the scout during the program unless there are special needs that require an adult to be present. We welcome adults and other family members to walk around Butterfly Wonderland while their scout is in session and have discounted tickets available for purchase at the same time as when you register your scout. IT IS REQUIRED that an adult be either in the Aquarium or within the OdySea in the Desert Entertainment Destination during the entire program in case of emergency.
