Scout Groups

Troop #5255 works on their Animal Habitats badge.Scout groups interested in discovering the Tijuana Estuary will find that they can fulfill badge requirements, parts of a journey, or a required project. Programs can either be guided by Reserve staff or self-guided by troop leaders or a combination of the two.

Interested groups should call at least 4 weeks in advance to make a reservation and discuss with the education staff which badge they are trying to earn. Programs are generally 1 – 1.5 hours in length. Binoculars are provided for the group to use. Programs are provided FREE of charge, however Tijuana Estuary patches are available for purchase upon completing your program.
