Girl Scouts in the Garden Badge Programs

Reserve your Girl Scouts’ spots in a Dallas Arboretum Educator-led program! Each program is designed to help Scouts accomplish all requirements to earn the corresponding Girl Scout badge, which can be purchased at your local GS shop. Troop leaders and chaperones are encouraged to join the fun and participate with their Scouts. At the close of the program, Scouts will receive a specially-designed Dallas Arboretum fun patch, too! Girl Scouts in the Garden Badge Programs include a combination of educational content, hands-on activities and guided exploration in the garden.

Pre-registration is required and includes all-day access to the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden and Main Garden. If you have any questions, please contact the Reservations Department by email at education@dallasarboretum.org or by phone M-F 11am – 5pm at 214.515.6540.
