Cub Scouts

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 an outdoor field setting.  If you have a suggestion for a program idea or topic, please feel free to let us know.  Happy Scouting.
