Please bring your signed Blue Card and our staff Merit Badge Counselor will sign off upon your completion of the badge requirements. Please dress for the weather, we will be outside observing birds for a portion of the program. Bring a water bottle and snack. Binoculars and a bird guide book are optional, we will provide both. Please download and fill out required paperwork and bring with you to the program. We will supply worksheets.
