Scout Programs

Tyler Arboretum provides fun, outdoor, educational opportunities for scouts and other youth groups all year long. Participants learn about natural living systems through use of the Arboretum’s diverse meadows, woodlands, and steams, and pond. Scouts take part in a wide range of challenging activities designed to help them advance through scouting levels. Join one of our educators for programs that are hands-on and a fun way to earn part of your badge.
