Wonders of Water Workshop
We have several water related activities to choose from, or, do them all! Water Cycle terrarium, what is a watershed, and how much water is out there for us to use? If your troop is working their way through the Wonders of Water Journey, this is the place to come to bring what they are learning to life!
"Trees" Badge Workshop
We have many amazing trees at our site. We also have a nature trail on the MWSU campus full of extraordinary trees. Programs include: Nature Hike, Nature Journaling, History of Forest Fires, or take a look at one of our tree cookies to count the ring and learn from the natural history contained in their wood.

We have many different animal habitats for looking and observing. Choose from Forest, Prairie or Pond. Choose from these quality programs or just come out to enjoy the trail: Nature Trail Hike, Litter clean up, Macro-invertebrate pond exploration, or just have an expert on a particular habitat give a custom talk to your group.
