Would a Scavenger Hunt Sheet spice up your hike? We have a variety of sheets to download to use both at Heckrodt and elsewhere.

Scavenger Hunt Sheets



Heckrodt Wetland Reserve has developed programs based on the requirements of BSA cub scout awards of merit.  We strive to give scouts of all levels an opportunity to earn awards in a field trip setting.  Our programs are published in a single brochure to make it easier for scout leaders to find the programs they need.  If you have a suggestion for a program idea or topic, please feel free to let us know.  Happy Scouting.
