Plan your group program!

The nature center offers Guided Discovery Programs for children and adults to explore and learn more about Millbrook Marsh. These programs are created using academic standards and are great for classes, after-school groups, home-school students and scout groups. Programs are led by staff and volunteers; all activities are designed to have high value to students and a low impact on the marsh.

Scouting Programs at Millbrook Marsh

Millbrook Marsh Nature Center has group programs designed especially for scout groups (in addition to our regular group programs!) Participants will complete activities and explorations that meet all or some of the requirements for badges, while exploring Millbrook Marsh Nature Center with a naturalist. Leaders can schedule a program just for your troop or gather several troops together. The Program Fee is $7 per participant, paid in advance; this fee may be increased depending on the cost of the Scout badges.   MORE...
