Cub Scout Program
Tiger, Wolf and Bear: Wildlife Academics Pin
During this evening program, scouts will work on their Wildlife Academic Pin and enjoy seeing the Zoo grounds at night. Scouts will learn about animals that live in their own back yard to animals that live around the world. During this program scouts will:
- See and touch live animals while learning about camouflage
- Learn how to bring wildlife into your backyard by creating a birdfeeder
- Learn how to identify some common animal tracks and make a plaster cast of your favorite track to take home
- Learn about reptiles and amphibians by completing a flashlight scavenger hunt.
In order to complete your pin you will need to observe your birdfeeder at home for one week. When all activities are complete you may show your booklet to your cub master to receive your patch or pin.
Who registers: Tiger, Wolf and Bear packs or dens and their adult chaperones.
Fee: $15 per scout / adults free
Limit: 45 scouts
To register, please complete and mail the Scout Programs Registration Packet.

Dates not working with your schedule? We may be able to schedule another Wildlife Academic Pin program just for your pack or den. Fees are $15 per scout with a minimum fee of $225 (15 scouts). Call 314-646-4614 for additional information.
Do You Have a Mixed Age Group of Scouts?
If you have a scout troop/pack/den that has multiple age levels and our Snooze at the Zoo programs do not match your needs, you can schedule your own private scout overnight. When you schedule your own overnight we use the themes which we are currently offering but tailor them to match your needs. These overnights cost $35 per person and we require a minimum of 30 participants (this total includes scouts and adults) and a maximum of 60 participants.
Please contact Bridget Ebert, Overnight Programs Coordinator at (314) 646-4614 or email@example.com for more information.
