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. Girl Scout leaders can click on the badge name to see which requirements can be met at the Tijuana Estuary. 

Interested groups should call or email at least 4 weeks in advance to make a reservation and discuss with the education staff which badge they are trying to earn. Sorry, guided badge workshops are only for one badge per visit. Programs are generally 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.
