Merit Badge Days are offered monthly at Valley Crest Farm and Preserve. These sessions are open to all Boy Scouts. Scouts may sign up individually or with others from their troop.

Merit Badge Days are designed for scouts to complete merit badges with minimal home study. Scouts will work one- on- one with a counselor to complete all requirements and gain a thorough understanding of each topic discussed.

Forestry Merit Badge

Earn your Forestry Merit Badge at the farm. Discover the trees of our area, hazards they may cause and what concerns foresters have while maintaining a forest. This badge will be indoors and outdoors so please come prepared for hiking and being outside.

Bird Study Merit Badge

Studying birds requires patience, concentration and attention to detail. In this class we will search for the birds who settle down in our area for the winter and learn to identify them by sound and sight.
This class meets on two consecutive days, on November 25- 26 from 10am- 1pm. Scouts must attend both classes to earn their badge. Scouts will earn their badge by the end of the class. This class will take place mostly outside so scouts should be dressed for the weather and ready to hike.

Cost for this course, including all materials, is $30.
