Springtime is a great time to start recruiting Tiger Cubs!
When a pack begins building its Tiger Den of Kindergarteners in the spring, the den is so much more organized than a new den of Tigers just getting organized in September or October. Plan one or two special Tiger activities in the spring and summer and invite the den to a pack summer activity.
Here’s to a G-R-R-R-R-E-A-T den of spring Tiger Cubs
Who: Cub Scouts 1st-3rd grade and Girl Scouts K-3rd grade. Please register individually and not as a troop.
What: Scouts will choose stations to visit and tours to go on. Some of the topics include: composting, native plants, Leave No Trace, insects, seeds and planting, and plant selection.
Where: Aaron Education Center at the Bellevue Botanical Garden, 12001 Main Street, Bellevue, WA 98005. Please check-in at the Education Center when you arrive.
When: Saturday, April 29th, 2017 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. How: To register go to www.bellevuebotanical.org and click on Learning in the Garden then Scout Programs.
