Cub Scout and Scouts BSA Workshops

Tracy Aviary offers exciting workshops for both Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA. 

Scouts BSA Bird Study Workshop

Join us for a half-day full of rewarding adventure and the beginning of endless fun! Become a skilled birder alongside our expert staff by learning to identify birds not only by sight but also by sound. You will explore the Aviary and nearby Liberty Park to meet birds both native and exotic, while discovering tricks and tools of the trade for observing birds up close.

Our certified Scout instructors will guide Scouts toward meeting all requirements for the Bird Study Merit Badge, developing life skills along the way. To name a few: proper use of binoculars, choosing and using field guides, recognizing bird “field marks,” and above all learning to be thoughtful stewards of our wild places. 

Cub Scout Fur, Feathers, and Ferns Workshop

Join us for a half-day full of new discoveries! Learn the value of wild things and wild places while exploring Tracy Aviary and the surrounding Liberty Park. Further your skills in observation and identification to explore a world you might not have noticed before! 

Our instructors will guide Scouts toward meeting all requirements for the Fur, Feathers, and Ferns Adventure. Some activities include planting a vegetable garden, observing plant life up close, and going for a 1-mile hike around Liberty Park.
