Age Groups: J (click for more information)
Who: Girl Scout Juniors
Go Batty with us this spring, learning about geology and bats at the same time. Meet the requirements to earn a badge and a patch – Geology Rocks & Going Batty (courtesy of Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois). During your fun-filled visit perform rock tests, go on a fossil hunt, and test soil. Learn about the importance of bats in ecosystems where they live. Play a game, create a poster, and make a craft that will help remind scouts and others, to be good neighbors to bats everywhere. Each troop will build a bat house to put up in their community. This event includes a presentation about cave conservation, cave animals, and cavern formation. The highlight of your trip will be touring TWO beautiful crystal caverns. Included are workshops to fulfill badge/patch requirements, indoor “slumber party” style lodging, evening snack, and a lunch-time meal.
