Ross Park Zoo Merit Badge Weekend
Join the Baden-Powell Council and the Binghamton Zoo for the first Scouts BSA Merit Badge Weekend. Over a weekend, earn up to four merit badges including Reptile and Amphibian Study, Mammal Study, Bird Study, and Veterinary Medicine. On Saturday we will offer Mammal Study and Veterinary Medicine. On Sunday we will offer Bird Study and Reptile and Amphibian Study. Scouts may choose to sign up for any combination of badges. Additionally if a Scout wants to use finish the requirements for Reptiles and Amphibians by observing the reptiles at the Zoo, there is an additional fee that will grant them access to the zoo specifically for that purpose.
