We can help your Girl Scouts earn any of several nature or environmental science badges. Through hands-on activities, games, and hikes through the woods, your scouts won't realize that they're learning! TNC Environmental Educators can lead your scouts in an exploration of the wonders of the natural world. Hands-on learning, close observations with live animals and artifacts from our nearly 400 acre living museum bring badges to life! All programs are marked with the season(s) they are best done in. Please check the program you’re interested in for the specific length.
Scouts can also participate in any of our seasonal programs and learn how to make maple syrup, apple cider, review their map and compass skills, or experience the forest in the dark--if you dare! If a subject or badge that interests you does not appear below, please contact the Scout Coordinator for more information. or contact the Scout Coordinator.

Many of the programs Tenafly Nature Center offers can be altered to accommodate participants with special needs. We ask that you disclose pertinent information with a minimum of two weeks notice about any students that have any special needs (particular educational requirements resulting from learning difficulties, physical disability, or emotional and behavioral difficulties).
